How to make a roof with clay tiles

We have been offered a bunch of old roof tiles, so my husband would like to make a roof for the fire wood stack. Can anyone point me in the direction of a DIY website that shows how to do this? I don't even know what key words to search for.

Thanks.

Re: How to make a roof with clay tiles

Compared to corrugated steel sheets, tiles weight literally tons so the roof beams must be very strong and densely placed.

Perfect! I found instructions by searching for Biberschwanz Dachzigel verlegen. This is going to be one nice looking wood stack roof!

Re: How to make a roof with clay tiles

Should be pretty simple for a small roof like that. Here's how Sara did it:

Re: How to make a roof with clay tiles


This, too, is a woodpile. Honestly. Not a woodpile in front of a house. Just a woodpile.
Saw it last Saturday in Sigigen Luzern.

Re: How to make a roof with clay tiles

Before you go into DIY mode, do check to see if a firewood 'Hüsli' requires a permit in your Gemeinde.

It does in ours - which we found out the hard way. Once that woodpile is turned into a neat, orderly stack with weather protection it becomes a building - and if over 60cm or 100cm (in our Gemeinde) it requires written permission from your neighbors. If neighbors refuse and one still wants to go ahead, a 'Kleinbau' permit from the Gemeinde is needed.

But as always in Switzerland, YMMV. Check your local regs.

Good luck with your project.
