Your roof overhang
The typical roof overhang serves six basic purposes:
  • Help to shade windows in hot weather
  • Reduce the amount of rain that hits the exterior of the log wall
  • Provide protection for doors and entryway
  • Keep basements dry
  • Protect the foundation from excess water runoff
  • Help to regulate the temperature of the home

The minimum overhang should be 5 feet but longer is better. If your design allows it try and make the overhangs as big as possible.
