Thanks for the link Atlantic, that will help. I did look at how this was originally installed. The main structure is nailed into the sheathing, that's why I have trepidations of simply copying what was done. If I wasn't residing the house, I would have simply replaced the rotted/ing pieces. I think the roof structure should be nailed to the house studs and be placed directly on the sheathing much like a ledger. They way it was done it was attached through the cedar shingles.
Edit Additional Pics:
Lately, the building office has been letting me get by with my existing permit on my additional creaping scope projects.

This happens to be exactly what I was thinking for how to tie a 3 sided frame into the house. The addition of the 2x6 braces using joist hangers attached to the house's structure is what I was having problems wrapping my head around.
