Your plans will call that out, my guess is the new roof will be "California" framed to the existing roof, but who knows.

And if you do not have plans, perhaps you should think about getting some.

joes right, if you dont know anything about roof framing. trying to frame an intersecting roof is the last type of roof you want to learn how to do on your own
