Info for building a covered patio


Looking to build a large covered structure over my patio.

16'x30', wood construction, covered in stucco, standing seam metal roof.
Gas mounted heaters, ceiling fans, can lights.
I was planning on 3-6x6 posts spanned with 6x8 header, ledger board would be a 2x8, rafters are 2x8 16OC.
Top and bottom covered in osb sheets, all proper simpson hardware.

Anyone see any issues so far????
