Skyloft: Roofing

Andrew helping out with the roof.

Chose one of the sheets to be 100% transparent to allow light through. Wanted the area by the door to be well lit at all times. 

Getting the roofing done. It's simple corrugated polycarbonate roofing sheets. Easy to install with integrated rain/snow channels. The ripples gives it strength. I'm giving it a bit of an angle for the rain/snow to sheet off. Hope it's enough. Even if it isn't.. there's enough bracing underneath to hold a LOT of weight.

Future project: I want to install a periscope! We'll see.. another year for that detail.

  1. Well, I think the bracing underneath is strong enough to hold against heavy snow or rainfall. The angle of the roof would help allow the snow/rain to slide down easily. The polycarbonate roof would also allow enough lighting in your door area. It will give the space a more pleasant atmosphere.
