As part of the remodel, the worn out roof was replaced with a green roof, planted with moss and ferns gathered along the Columbia River Gorge. The green roof offers insulation as well as a playful visual counterpoint to the traditional white cottage. Photo by Lincoln Barbour.
I have a small front porch/concrete slab with no roof.
I'd love to know how the green roof was done. What was used as a barrier underneath? How deep is it, etc.?

Love the idea of the roof pitched up..and all the glass to keep the light and view
Polycarbonate glazing is a perfect roof material, because it is half the weight of glass and virtually unbreakable.
