    Great information. Thanks for sharing. I have been helping build a circular strawbale house with a planned reciprocal roof, hopefully sod covered. My questions are: Are you aware of any outward pressure on the walls resulting from the reciprocal roof rafters when the weight changes from water or snow load? did you mount the rafters tight to the wall structure or allow from some slippage?

    Thank you in advance for your help.
