That rafter looks OK. If the decking is OK and you're not setting the new rafter between old ones. They must bear on a solid surface.

Okay, here's how far I got today. I'm starting to worry that I won't be done in time. It's saying possible rain on friday so I need a tarp plan for tomorrow night. With luck I'll have the rafters and OSB in by then.

Here are the end of the hip rafters, I tried to taper them to zero. Not perfect, are they good enough?

And the first nailer fell short of going all the way to the roof. That seems like it will be okay but I want to make sure. The next seem too thick where it meets the roof, or will it be okay?

Attached Carport Problems


Okay, so after a long weekend of the roofers finishing and one rain that I tarped for successfully, it's all done! The first picture is how far I got on my own, the second is the finished roof. Had I known it would have been dry this long I might have tried to get further but I'm still glad I had someone finish for the actual waterproofing at the end. Just to have some one besides my self to hold accountable lol I ended up going over budget but still did all this for less than the first estimate to just replace the flat roof.

Thanks so much for all your help frank, the roofers who came to give me estimates all said I did a pretty good effort for a newbie and that's all thanks to you. Hope you are well and thanks again for everything

Glad to have helped. Call again any time! Using the phone and posting pix to ask and answer in real time was the big factor.
