We are in 50psf snow load with the typical wind design speeds. Going either 9-12 or 10-12 with standing seam panels, likely no exposed fasteners. Would require some really strange conditions for snow to not quickly fall off the roof.
For the IRC, which I am going by, the 24" for eave overhang is measured from horizontal, not slope distance. Your code may be the same, it's worth double-checking.
I've been following your thread and you've done a great job! In regards to your comment above, I see you're from upstate NY, I have a cabin in the tug hill area and two winters ago it didn't go above freezing for the entire month of February and the snow piled up on the roof. I had about 3' or more compressed snow on the roof and it didn't shed it until it warmed up in early march. I have a metal roof with exposed screws, 9:12 pitch, 2' overhang on the eave and 18" on the gable. This isn't normal, but you never know. Good luck on the build, keep the pictures coming!Jason
Nathan if you go with exposed fasteners on your metal might I suggest what I used on mine. They are pan head with the torx inset in the head. They are less prone to collect what ever needs to slide off the roof like hex headed screws. They come in colors the same as regular fasteners.
I like those screws you showed more than the hex screws (used on my shed). Do they have a rubber washer on them?
If I skip the first rafter and span 32" inboard are there code provisions for this? Hard to imagine anything wrong with that if I double up the rafter. Also seems like this follows cantilever rules better.
Only braced wall panels parallel to the braced wall line shall contribute toward the required length of bracing of that braced wall line. Braced wall panels along an angled wall meeting the minimum length requirements of Tables R602.10.5 and R602.10.5.2 shall be permitted to contribute its projected length toward the minimum required length of bracing for the braced wall line as shown in Figure R602.10.1.4. Any braced wall panel on an angled wall at the end of a braced wall line shall contribute its projected length for only one of the braced wall lines at the projected corner
Thanks Jason I appreciate it. That winter I remember some areas the snow drifts were taller than my truck. We get a little lake effect down in Chenango but it is nothing like up your way. Even Hamilton gets a lot more snow than us. I am ready for some cooler weather, the heat and humidity this summer has really started slow me down. It is hard to work a full day.Is your gable framed the way Don suggested? You make a good point, whatever I do I should not expect the snow to shed itself off.
