10×10 footprint. Did roofing using an 8’ ladder, but my wall height was only 6’4” (it’s a playhouse)

The roofing was very quick and easy. You can roof it from an extension ladder, but it does require mobility and nimbleness.
If I recall correctly, we started off doing a 12/12, but opted for a 10/12 midstream to lower the profile. The client’s house was a 10/12 as well so it did not look out of place at all.
