Building rafters for small shed


I was windering if there was a simple how-to on building rafters for a small shed and similar things. When i moved in this shed was built but only had half a crappy roof, wanted to finish it before winter to store my summre stuff in it.

Use one of the existing rafters as a pattern to make the new ones from, with the same angled cuts made.

The existing is prety much not good, slope would be about 1 inch for 4 feet. Basicly i will have to start over. I've been looking around at how to use framing squares and now speed squares. Ill see if I can purchase one that has a little booklet or google to find some info.
