Overhangs and Bale Walls

It is an important practice to provide bale walls with a wider-than-average roof overhang. If you extend the roof further, less rain can fall directly on the walls and snow cannot pile up against them.When planning, consider the direction of prevailing winds that will drive the rain and the availability of sun that will help with drying. There is no magic number for overhangs, but you should plan for a minimum of 24 inches. Wider overhangs can become a defining characteristic of your home and, used well, can add a unique visual appeal.
