Re: Spanning 20 ft for monopitch construction


Thank you all for the advice. We ended up changing the design for practicality. The roof now slopes the other direction and we used 14ft 2x8s spaced at 16". I also had not previously considered the rafters running parallel to the floor joists. I know that is a BIG beginner mistake, but I'm glad you guys talked this out and it gave me the time to realize.

Thanks again
