Roof Complexity and slop:
There is no any limit for the roof design and its
complexity/slop. However, Roof complexity design would
affect the cost greatly. Simple roof line with minimum
number of the hips and valley are considered as the basic
roof with the minimum cost.
If you are considering high pitch /sharp slop for your roof,
almost there is not much difference for the cost of the
prefabrication, but you might consider extra cost for
assembly if you decide to have roof with pitch 6/12 or higher.
If you are interested to have traditional looking timber framing with open design as well
other feature / lower cost, Hybrid construction could be considered
as an alternative.
The exterior wall (SSP panel) would be considered as the load
bearing wall and post and beam frame would be applied only
through interior of the design.
If you have access to the material and resources familiar with
conventional studded wall frame, you might consider to have
timber frame combined with conventional studded wall in
order to be more economic.
Also Hybrid construction might apply to integration of the
log siding, straw-bale insulation and other construction
method such as ICF (insulated concrete form) blocks.
