Your birdmouth cuts on the first 2 rafters had me a bit worried, Good to see the 2x6's and a ridgeboard to boot. With the snow load in Montgomery you could have used 2x4's and some plywood gussets and felt safe with it. But It'll be there, the way you're doing it. Did you forget the sheathing clips? LOL
