WEDGEBLOCK SHELTER DESIGN
So named because it is a wedge shape on top of a block
Simply made to take adavantage of Uk permitted development rules for small outbuildings. It allows 4m total hieght for a dual pitch roof as opposed to 3m for a flat roof .
This is using the Hexayurt type design principle of standard 2.44 x 1.22m boards, with minimal cuts to form triangles & no waste (if possible)
This design uses 12 sheets of OSB / plywood / rigid insulation. 8 form a square around walls (2 each side) they can be installed like in the model with the short side on floor, or with a horizontal seam.
The wedge shaped roof can form a small shelter itself, using 4 boards or 2.5 boards if its' width
Paper model with slight gapes to show triangle construction of roof side
Full size mock up of wedge shaped, dual pitch roof
A single panel can be used as well for a thinner shelter.
2 cuts made in a sheet
Join the small triangle to the edge of the smaller of the 2 other triangles.
This makes 2 triangles the same size, which form the sides of the roof (see pic below)
