Hello, I plan on attaching a Carport to the side of my house using hangers for the rafters screwed to the facia. The carport is 21 feet in length and 11 feet wide and due to the current house roof drip edge it only leaves me approx 4 1/2 inch to attach the hangers, so if I'm using 2x6's the hangers will hang approx 1 1/4 lower than the facia board so might look weird. So my question is, should I replace the facia board with 1x6 board and let the board hang down a bit from the soffit but the 2x6 hangers will look flush or can I use 2x4 lumber for the rafters at 12" ctrs and just sister every other? I'm keep the slop standard at 1/4 inch per foot, so roughly 3 inch slope over the entire width.
