Roof Framing Plan

The Sanara’s contemporary flat roof (0.5/12 pitch) is designed with a standard 2’ overhang around the entire perimeter. The roof system consists of 3-ply 2x12 beams, 2x10 joists, and 5/8” T&G plywood sheathing.

Flat roofs do not always require vents. If vents are desired, they can be installed on the tallest wall or sidewalls of the building. Consult with your contractor or roofing company, for the most effective ventilation system for your roof.

Overhang Detail

The soffit covers the underside of the Sanara’s overhang and extends throughout the canopy ceiling.

Fascia (typically 1x4 cedar) is the board that runs along the bottom edge of the roof, trimming the eaves with a nice, straight line.

Foundations

Choosing the right foundation will depend on your Sanara’s size, location, and purpose. The preferred foundation for a Sanara is a floating concrete slab. Piers may also be an option.

Enhanced Siding Package (ESP)

Your Sanara includes our enhanced siding package: a layer of sheathing (OSB or plywood) and building wrap (a breathable, water-resistant air barrier) between the siding and the wall framing that give the structure shear strength and act as an additional plane of protection against moisture.

Finishing

Once your Sanara is complete, there are even more ways you can tailor your design to suit your taste and needs. See Interior Finishing for more information.

Interior Cedar Siding and Framing

The Sanara’s enclosure can be customized with a wide array of interior finishes. Consider upgrading to cedar framing or adding pine or cedar cladding to your enclosure’s walls and ceiling.

Electrical

The inside of your Sanara is ready for the addition of lighting, outlets, heating equipment, and anything else you have in mind. Once the installation is complete and before finishing your interior, simply have an electrician come in and do their thing.

Plumbing

Provided you have a water source nearby, your Sanara can be plumbed with sinks and taps. If you have something a little more elaborate in mind, like a shower or toilet, make sure it’s coordinated with the installation of your concrete pad and enclosure.
