Lean to roof rafter help


See around post #2496 on his thread, for that link I posted, around page 167, regarding Shumaker Scott's current status on his German house rebuild.

If you're talking about a shed, I don't think there is, but I could be wrong. Ask your building department if that's an actual constraint before racking your brain trying to figure out a way around it. I'm not sure how you would flush mount a rafter end to a beam in a way that is structurally sound (i.e., would pass code, whether you'll need to or not). I've not seen any Simpson hanger for that application, but then again I don't know their entire product line.
