Dimensions for pent roof constructions
We are dealing here with a special form. It starts from the lines of a right-angled triangle. Decisive for the dimensions are the following elements: You have to comply with the length and width of the building. After these you have to determine the roof pitch, the rafter length and the ridge height. There are a number of tools on the Internet that can be used to calculate the appropriate measurements. The changes in just one of these elements require adjustments to all the others.

But let's start from zero. Garden sheds often come with prefabricated elements. You just have to assemble them. You hardly need help, but normally you should do this project for two. Otherwise you will be able to move the big parts hard.

Various uses of pent roof constructions
One connects mostly with the pent roof two sides, which are inclined. But sometimes one limits oneself just with modern constructions on one. Often she goes down to the backyard. The facade is then below the higher end. So the decision mostly has to do with it. In many cases, however, one wants to combine the pent roof constructions with installations of photovoltaic panels. Then you plan the inclination so that they are positioned most favorably.

This construction is also popular for open, but covered parking in front of the house. When combined with similar-looking home constructions, the result is an aesthetically pleasing image. In this case, you should plan the slope so that it is protected from the sun. So think exactly from which direction the sunshine is coming most of the time.
