While this isn’t a traditional Tiny Home, I really loved the modern feel and of course the insane water catchment potential and look of this roof. This house is still about 1,200 square feet smaller than a typical American home. You can see several large tanks off the back of the house which is used to collect rain water from the roof. One square foot of roof can yield ½ a gallon of water from 1 inch of rain. So roughly estimating for this roof, one inch of rain yields over 1200 gallons of water!
The house is also cleverly designed to have an upper roof as primary shelter and sun shade and then there is a roof on the actually home’s structure. This is brilliant because the main roof is topped with highly reflective metal, reducing heat absorption. Then there is an air space between the main roof and the home’s roof to prevent any transference of heat to the home itself. The space allows wind to cool both sides of the upper roof and keeps you cool below.
