How do you attach a portico to the side of a house?
 
I am replacing the siding on the front of my house and would like to put up a portico over the entry, the front of it would be held by 2 posts, but I would like to just attach the back trusses to the house with hangers or something (if it's possible) or do I have to put 2 bearing posts on the back also? Itís only going to be about 5í wide by 6í long and I live in Minnesota so it needs to be able to hold some snow. When I think about these things hanging off the front of houses I always wonder how they don't just blow right off in a stiff wind.

With the siding off the ledger and rafters can be lag screwed to the house framing--
