Build a roof over MH deck.
Hi all new to the website (great forum by the way) and i have a few questions about building a roof over a deck i just built (12X32). I live in south Texas (1.5 years, moved from Wyoming) about 45 miles from Corpus Christi. We bought 10+ acres and put a Clayton (2006 repo) single wide (18X76) trailer on the property. Used a base of caliche with cinder block foundation to place the trailer on. My question is can i attach a gable roof off the existing MH roof on one side with 8X8 posts on the other, i am going to probably cover/enclose 16' of the deck. Do you think this could be to much weight on the roof (house is a zone 2 wind rating). A free standing roof wouldn't look that good and it would be a pain to dig the footings for the posts closest to the house. Any suggestions??
