I have decided to build a garage, well my builder friend will do the building the shell, but i'll be getting my hands dirty too.
I'm about to put in for PP, I'm having a go at the design and drawing up of plans myself. So is there a permitted pitch that the roof should be it's a stand alone single story build, with double skin brick and block work. I hope to install solar panels to the roof either part of the roof or fixed on to of it.
would really appreciate any advise.
If you want it to be more than just a garage eg workshop, if you make the pitch steeper you can then go for a collared roof which will give you greater headroom (and more storage).
Cheapest option would be a flat roof. The steeper the pitch on a pitched roof the more tiles will be needed and will cost more.
Cost it both ways and decide from there.
