I have a concrete block garage (24x24) that I added a 2nd story to for storage. I added a shed roof to it on the back with posts 10' away from the wall with a 2'overhang and 4/12 pitch with a shingle roof. I would like to add a similar feature to the side of the garage with post at 12' (for extra room) and wraparound and connect to back roof forming a hip. Because of height of existing shed roof on back of garage I can't go higher on new side roof, there is a 2' overhang here also. The pitch will be less on this new roof and the corner angle will be approximately 50degrees not the desired 45 degrees. I was going to roof all of this with metal roof. Is this doable and if so what should hip rafter be made of, 2 by's or lvl beam. I see many opinions on web on this topic. Please help with anything you see as red flags. Thanks in advance for your help. Steve G.
