How does the roof cope with the snow load? In my mind, flat roofs and a lot of snow are not a good combination.
The roofs on this particular house were engineered above and beyond the calculated snow load for the area. With flat roofs water shed is also a main concern, and needs to be designed accordingly to ensure the roof will not leak.
flat rooves don't spoil the view in mountain/snow country. and snow is a good insulator so the insulation R-value goes up the more snow there is.

So a 12-inch framing depth allows room for the right amount of insulation in the cavity. And whenever it snows, the flat roof supports an additional

before you have interior damage.If you live where it snows, think about the water your house will make from that snow. Unless your home is superinsulated, the heat escaping from it will melt some of the snow before the sun does. When that melted snow reaches overhangs that are colder, it can freeze and
