i'm not painting the deck, transparent stain only. i like to see the wood.

so, if i didn't use treated. what would i do with the posts ? as they would be on the piers. the brackets good enough ?
Sorry, I wasn't listening well enough, I thought you were talking about the type of roofing, not the stile of roof. That last link does look good and is simple to build and nowhere as expensive as the other roof.

Not in the photo, but that roof has a load bearing ridge. The wall side is supported but buried in the wall. After the wall, I'd add a facade that reflects 3 supports in the front truss.

ok. this is what i have so far. obviously it is not finished. i am kinda embarrassed by it , as it kinda looks cheap and cheezy.

i just threw the ply up there to "get a feel". i need to buy the "correct" length 1x4's to go on the rafters, then that ply on that.

the rafter ends. idk if i would like them exposed. or covered with a board like what i have temp up there.

1" xps on that wall before the siding.

gimme some ideas here.

It don't look cheap, it looks unfinished.

I do see a potential problem, your HVAC unit is in danger of a lot of runoff , it needs some protection too.

Have you considered the "rainhandler" line of goods for a gutter?

the a/c is going to be moved out a little.

rainhandler, thanx, but i don't like that for this. i am thinking some kind of drip edge or something. i don't want a regular gutter, unless it is really small. idk if there even is anything like what i am thinking, thats why i am asking

You could fashion a piece of angle iron, as a small thing to channel water to the ends, but it's capacity is limited. it would overflow in a good ol Chicago storm.

I was hoping that you would say that the A/C was being relocated.

ya know, your a freaking genius ! angle iron. i have plenty and can make anything i would want.
i am not worried about it handling heavy rains = if it is raining that heavy, your gonna get soaked reguardless.

the a/c has already been relocated. it used to be under where the deck is. but i had the guy put extra line, so that i could move it around some = a few feet or so. ... but, as it is now, i don't see how anything would give it an issue.

Looking good, everything starts off looking inadequate. I was going to suggest cutting the end of the rafters something like the photo below but what you have will look fine.

Yes, a normal gutter would work fine. If you do the angle iron you could get some water backing up under the shingles so be sure to put down ice/water shield before shingling. A piece of RV gutter would work in light rain if you want something small.

once i finally got to work, i got some more done. because the middle is kinda weak, i am going to try to addd 2 more struts, but the way i want them, idk if i can make them in less than 1 week(compound cuts = very easy to ruin a board)......

i tried getting on it, i chickened out. felt slippery.
the roofing guys are at me .
but i must figure something out, as i need to get up there to put the siding on.

i got the deck boards at menards. 1x4's. but look at the color of them. i think they looked pretty nice. i hate to paint em, but oh-well.

i am going to cut the rafter ends off at a simple angle. it will look better and give a little more headroom = i think the slope is a little to much = looked ok when i started

and i left extra felt hanging over. cause i don't yet know exzctly how i should cut it.

You might need a little more support for the other rafters, just decking is not very good support, after a while it could very easily sag. Snow loads are another concern.

Another concern is you need more to secure the rafters into the board better, a heavy load can pull the rafters loose from the wall fairly easy. Is there wood behind the ridge/ledger board, if it is just floating it could cause you some problems.
