three sided run-in on wooden platform

I was planning on building a 3 sided shed (with using tarps for the door opening) on a wooden platform that is already built. My plan is to do the sides up 4' with t111, and I have sheets of plexiglass that are 31" x 24" for the next 2 feet up. So, the three sides will be 4' of wood, than 2' of plexiglass all around...with studs 24" oc. My question is for the roof, what pitch will I need for Northern VA area, if the back is at 6' high will I have to make the front of the shed to get the correct pitch for this area? Also, what is the cheapest roofing material I can put on this will be
8' long by 10 wide. Thanks

4/12 is good but if you have lots of snow
the higher the slope the better
as for cheap roofing product
you can buy 90 pound mineral rool
it's like shingle finish but in solid color and come in rool of 36 inches wide

Ok, thanks for the reply. 4/12 sounds good for this area i guess, and I'm still not sure what I will do for the roof. I was looking at the tin sheets at lowes for about 15$ a sheet, not too bad. Thanks
