Attached Pergola

I am contemplating building an elevated freestanding deck with a pergola attached to the house. I have a couple of questions.

First, are there any issues with the desk being freestanding and the pergola being attached?

Second, any suggestions on how to attach the pergola rafters to the ledger without using joist hangers? They're not all together attractive and they'd be VERY visible on the pergola. What do you guys do?

We just finished building our own attached pergola - it was relatively easy and only cost around $150... We chronicled the project on our blog - check it out! You can also email us for more specific advice - email link is on the blog!

Happy Building!
