Let's design a timber framed roof to cover an outdoor kitchen between the House and Library at Wheaton Base Camp.

Design requirements:
1) timber frame
2) open air for types of heat
3) glass roof in places
4) highest ridge exceeds both, house and library
5) stabilized on bed rock

I kicked off the project with Paul's idea of having three gable roofs. One opaque roof, and two lower roofs with glass surfaces.

Please comment. Thanks!

I like the airflow you're going for with the roof design.

Do we know the summertime prevailing winds direction/intensity at this spot?
What's your vertical clear between the t.o. fph ridge and the b.o. galley high roof beam?

I don't. In a conversation about the red cabin and love shack, Paul told me that Base Camp doesn't get much wind.

I hope to answer your questions with these screen captures and measurements within.

You would be much easier to understand if you took that bucket off of your head. And that goes for the tiny ad too!
