You've pretty much broke the back of it with your drawing. Unfortunately you'll never completely negate the need to address wind loading. Taking quakes out of the picture, wind can be a structures worst enemy. Having tilting louvres (or similar) can help for the day to day average pressure but you'll still need to consider the gusting speeds. That peak velocity will be affected by where you are in relation to the mountains (assumption based on mountain home) and the altitude above sea level.
I can do my best to help you but your local codes are going to be your best friend.
