Forum Issues Update
We are continuing to work diligently to resolve the issues currently being experienced with the PhotoPlog. Thank you for your patience!
Where the heck are you directing runoff? Where the water goes impacts how you construct your roof when it's cornered like that - unless you will be using gutters. (Not sure how you could avoid gutters if you are even considering a shed style roof.)
Modified gambrel or maybe a variant of a monitor barn roof (bi-level). Or 'Tahiti' style w/o the thatch (think those little huts around the swimming pool trying to make it look tropical -should work in a corner and look pretty darn good).
If it will go with your decor, pagoda roofs are very visually interesting. Not what you'd expect on a oven since baking bread is relatively new to China (rice has next to no gluten so it had to be introduced) which could be a plus.
Depending on your carpentry skills, available materials and just how crazy you are, you could modify a shed to have an up arc like a pagoda only steep enough to redirect water. Really different - and potentially a real headache if you don't build it well, have a good way to manage the water or forget to clean up the leaves.
My all time favorite (<- note the dripping sarcasm) is the inverted A-frame. It's visually interesting, I'll give it that - and possibly the most useless roof design ever (unless you like having a waterfall off the end every time it rains). The one I have in mind was built 15 feet or so above the ground on an open structure that is only ten feet wide. Needless to say, you don't use it on a rainy day.
Just use your imagination - and good gutters!
