I have a question about roof pitch and looks. I'm building a Three Seasons Room for a customer. Their ranch house roof pitch is 4/12 and they want the room pitch to be 6/12. I'm concerned about how that is going to look. Anyone ever ran into this before?

They want the sumner (support) 2x10's to set on their top plate. I have to make it a 6/12 for the overhangs to match. That's all.
Tough situation, but they shouldn't be dictating how to build it. You're the expert.

Without seeing the situation or thinking about it overmuch, seems like you should be able to give them the look they want without a pitch mismatch.

I don't know the exact situation without seeing it but I've done many additions with different roof pitch than the main house roof. Not ideal but sometimes it's necessary. If possible make it 4/12 to match the house

Give the customer what they want. If they change it give them a CO for 17 hrs.
I think part of the job is to make sure the customer doesn't do something stupid they will regret. You could just follow their instructions but it is pretty certain they will have forgotten what they told you (conveniently) and I'd rather do it right or not at all. Just my opinion.
