    Being from Edmonton, we rarely see these 'modern - flat roof' type houses. Its like we are a few years behind everyone else... not sure why?

    Are they still lumbar/wood construction on a concrete foundation or are they completely concrete?

    It depends on where you go I think, there are some sort of crazy flat top houses in Glenora, Victoria Park, Sask Drive area, and some monstrocities in the new Windemere area.

    Yeah, we have seen a couple in Magrath and Windermere... but there are definately more architectural controls seen in Calgary than Edmonton.

    I am looking for some creative ideas for building next year. I want to learn more about the difference in construction and ultimately costs... not sure where to start, if you guys have any ideas, please advise.

    Yes, 2 years late but...

    After owning a flat roof'd 1960's house and researching it... Flat roof technology has come a long way.
    They use a rubberized membrane now that is essentially easy to lay down and less prone to leaks and UV degradation.

    The roof trusses in the house I had seemed to be spaced a lot closer together to accompany the added weight of the snow/ice that doesn't instantly melt off a sloped roof.

    I'd say, the issues that people used to have with flat roofs have been essentially mitigated and IMO, a newer flat roof is a lot less hassel and cheaper to repair. Albeit, I have not attempted to redo a newer flat roof, but it would appear to be a lot less man hours compared to a shingled roof and can last a lot longer with some minor care (ensuring gravel or what not is protecting that rubber membrane.
