In case you are a bot they block pictures on your very first post.Hi,
I am totally new to this but recently got some experience with roofing with my DIY shed I completed (ground-up build). It was a sucess...!. My next project is a patio roof (shingles) over my deck. Dimensions are 14.5' x 12'. If this is a rectangular roof, it would have been simple as my shed roof but unfortunately, it's not. My construction includes 2x6 rafts and 4x4 poles.
This is a cartoon of roof (not to scale) - Image link added
My question is related to the left corner where it is angled (not rectangular) Since I don't have a pole supporting the middle raft of the three rafts on to the left, I am thinking creative way to have the best support to the middle raft without adding additional pole there.
This is the 3D sketch of it - Image link added
I am thinking of adding a cross-bar between first and third raft (in addition to edge) I will do a cut-out of 2.75" on both where they cross so that height remains at 5.5". Is there any other better way? I do not want to have any safety concerns here.
Try posting it again.
