Oboy, that is just a lovely house and I would love to replicate that.

Would you mind posting a full thread on how you went about, the techniques and what were the costs. I wouldn't reinvent the wheel when you seem to have done just what I want already.

An arched-roof vault may be less expensive and strong. Not sure whether all masons can do this arched roof with brick/laterite/granite stone. A photo of such a building at Auroville and a model based on this attached.  This model has 2 rooms of 15'x9' with attached toilet and a kitchen slab.  Top of the toilet and kitchen is closed with an RCC slab of 6' width across the room, which can be used as a sleeping place or storage area.

Another economical roofing is by using inter-locking ferro-cement channels.  Write up attached.  You can see different kind of houses made using ferro-cement channels on this link .. newbielink:https://www.google.co.in/search?q=ferrocement+roof+construction+auroville&safe=active&espv=2&biw=1366&bih=599&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0CAYQ_AUoAWoVChMI8q_l_5WXyAIVApGOCh2oNwy2 [nonactive]

A new construction material for wall and roofing is GFRG.  This building system uses Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum (GFRG) panels, produced by FACT Kochi and RCF Mumbai based on calcination technology developed by Rapidwall Building Systems, Australia, using Phospho-gypsum, a fertilizer industry waste product.  One need do meticulous plan of the house, like door and window positions, cupboards position, electrical fittings position to plan concealed wiring (later it will be difficult to change wiring), wall hangings, etc.

Hi everyone.

Does anyone have the cost of the double tiled roof per sft - inclusive of the frame, tiles and laying?

GP Rao sir,
How much did you spend per sft for your roofing?

Thanks.

A relatively new concept in roof design is diaphragm action of sheeting which participates as a lateral as well as gravity load bearing member. Please view a slideshow at tinyurl.com/panel-roof.

After having estimated the costs and the benefits, I am settling for RCC filler slab.
There is some thinking around sloped vs. flat roof at the moment.

Dear Chandra Sir,

I am planning rooftop farming , if i build roof using RCC filler slab using mangalore tiles, can it withstand the load?
