What should be the height of wall? so roof pitch is 10 feet...

What should be the height of wall for metal roofing panels of 12 feet long...

We have storage shed floor built which is 15x8 ...where 8 feet is the width on which we are going to put 12 feet roofing panel so we can have 2 feet over hang...on each side...

city says without permit you can build shed height more than 10 feet and this 10 feet starts from ground (not floor) to the roof pitch (we will have metal low slope roof)

now, we have used concrete pier blocks which to put the floor on which has already taken 1 feet so please consider this...when you give advice about the height of wall should be?

What should be height of the front (higher wall) and what should be height of lower wall to achieve optimum slope for this 12 feet long metal roofing..

Pier blocks for a storage shed and the roofs going to be attached to a building? You already off to a very bad start.
It's going to settle and the roofing going to pull away from the building.
Post some pictures.
Also go back and add where you live in your profile.
