2x12 rafters with 2x6 tails
I agree with Havalife, the second picture is a weakened rafter and you will lose some head room in your ceiling if running a vault. But if you are installing ceiling joist you will have to cut a level cut on all of the rafter that sits below the upper plate line. Why can't you just run the 2X12 over hang without ripping down to a 2X6, just cut for a fascia and soffit like you would a 2X10, 2X8, or 2X6 tail.
