Hi everyone, have a question. I have an open porch, that I torn down ,and rebuild just the outside frame which is just 2x8's double on 3 sides, the 4 side is the house that also has a ledger board where the 2x6's will sit on and come off to form the roof. Now the 2x8's as a whole are pitched, because this is a porch, and I wanted the roof framing to follow that pitch. I have drawings attached of the before framing, and would like to know what is the best way to frame it now. Keep in mind I need a 7 - 8" overhange on all 3 sides. The back ledger sits right on the 2x8's so that is where the o pitch starts, when i get out 6 feet, I have 1" final pitch. Any advice would be appeciated, please see the pictures.
