How to Build a Roof in Sons of the Forest

First, gather logs if you don’t have any stored for building. Assuming you’ve built a floor and walls already, you’ll first want to put a log down for support in locations that are wider than one log apart.

From here, it’s similar to building a floor above you. You’ll make the frame of four logs with support logs at the corners as needed.

Then, you’ll use planks to fill in the frame. It will take five planks, and the way that you need to position the camera to place the last one can be tricky. In those cases, you’ll need to just shift around until the dotted arrow appears for placing the plank.
