Ok, you guys have been invaluable in this process. Here's another question...or two.
I plan to build a simple shed style roof over my deck. I plan to use 2x8 rafters and a double 2x8 beam across the front. The ledger will also be a 2x8.
So here's the question(s): The broad side on the front I'll box in with Fascia on the rafter tails. But on the outsides should I just have the rafter flush with the outside edge of the 6x6 post? Is that all there is to it, or should I clean it up by adding fascia to this too?
My assumption is that I'll have to add fascia and let it go about 1" inch below the edge of the 2x8 on the end so that when I add the ceiling plywood the edges of the plywood will be hidden.
Is that how to do it?
Another question is this: If I have a double 2x8 rafter on each end and a double 2x8 in the center along with the other 2x8's 16" OC will that help prevent sagging? Or will that just add weight to the beam without adding strength? The span will be 14 feet.
