This blog documents the progress of our super-cool, pre-fab home "somewhere" in the wilds of Northwest Arkansas. Rocio Romero designed the home, model LVL, and incorporated our custom modifications. GC Don Lourie is doing the build and architect Brad Satterwhite is providing additional ingenuity.

Flat-Roof Resolution

I thought this may be helpful for other LV owners who have built in the woods. Last fall we had to make regular ladder runs to the roof to keep the scupper's clear of deciduous debris. To prevent drainage issues this autumn, Don and Jeremy designed a filter box that fits over the scuppers. The device should block larger objects and reduce clogging by increasing the surface area of the grate. Wider-guage screening should improve flow and a "cover" fabricated with Kynar-color-matched steel keeps twigs and leaves from falling directly into the drain. I'll keep you posted on how well this works!
