That would be the quick and easy way to get a slope, foam over plywood but 1% with 1" top end
would run out at 100".The cheaper way would be just to lift the rafters at the top end. I am

How much would you like to raise the roof?That may be another conundrum... I believe that the
minimum slope for a flat roof by building code here is 2%. (1/4" per 1'), the board length is
about 12 ft ...

Why not shim on the underside of the rafters at the top? That way you can affect the pitch

the rafters whe...

Instead of me asking a bunch of questions Lets go with what would have done and you can see how
