low slope roofs are not bad if proper material is used. rolled roofing does work but in my opinion the most likely to also fail. that is why i am willing to offer alternative if wanted but would like to know roof pitch and a overall pic always helps
well overall size is 15x8 and from ground to pitch of the roof it should not be more than 10 feet...I am thinking front 15 feet wide wall will have a higher side of roof and back 15 feet wall will have lower side of flat roof..
I have put the floor on concrete peer and floor joist are 2x6
so almost 1 foot is already used just on floor including 3/4 plywood
I only have 9 feet left up to pitch of the roof.
Out of this 9 feet I need 8 feet for studs ..
so front wall (where the pitch of roof would be ) will be 8+1+ 3 inches (top and bottom plate is 3 inches total) so total would be 9 feet and 3 inches...
which will be same as back wall (unless I cut 2x4x8 t o 2x4x7.6') so I only 9 inches left on front to create a slope...
I hope I gave you overall picture...so you can suggest alternative..
