This is actually the garage/studio so has no bedrooms but an office and gear room. The house on the property has three bedrooms.

Love this design. Is it expensive compared to traditional building. I would love to doze my current house and build a single pitch style home...

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Susan Stieglitz added this to Shed Roof
A shed roof creates more usable space than a typical gable roof, which has two low walls and a peak at the center.
The other building, which sits at a higher elevation, has a similar shed roof, even though it is not bermed into the ground. Again, the tall space is oriented to the sun, though it is shifted relative to the main building so as to capture views past it.
