    Any way to get around having to use joist hangers?



    No, Mr. inspection man said everything was to be hangered and Simpson tied. The very least, I could have taken the stickers off. LOL.


    It's all about the snow load.

    Thank you. It actually is not entirely done in those shots. If you notice there is a gap where it joins the house that j channel was filled. Also HO wanted a gutter that was installed

    Nice job. The joist hangers do stand out though. I wonder what type of paint would last on them.

    Yeah, there have been some threads on that here. I could have sprayed them and been fairly confident about it lasting since they are protected. But I am behind as it is and the HO's were tickled. They had a 60's aluminum awning with a hole in the middle for years. So on the the next job.

    ya know one thing I have done in the past is put blocks inbetween the rafters then just a simple trim strip along the bottom helps hide them
