  • Round roof

    I’m still in the planning stages and am trying to come up with a game plan for an enclosure. I live in southern New England (USA), so rain and freeze/thaw are a thing I will have to deal with. My planned location prohibits building a permanent structure over the oven. I really like the idea of the structure being round, since the oven is also round.

    I found the attached image on Facebook with the #fornobravo. I like this look and am wondering if anyone has thoughts on what the structure under that roof looks like?

    Does anyone have any suggestions on building techniques or material suggestions on achieving a round roof for my enclosure? I’m considering galvanized steel studs for the sides and something like an octagonal roof structure also from steel studs, building up the shape with a bunch of perlcrete, or even concrete/block walls with roof structure on top of that. For roof materials, I’m considering slate, asphalt shingles, cedar shakes, or even precast concrete segments that are sealed like a concrete countertop. I have read through a bunch of build threads, but haven’t come across one that has a round enclosure… can anyone point me towards one if I missed it?
