Some folks go straight to a RDP (registered design pro, architect or engineer) some do it themselves and some ask for input here and elsewhere. Some of that depends on where you are building and their requirements. When most of us talk about building to code we are referring to the IRC, the prescriptive residential code. Basically it is written so that if you stick to its prescriptive methods you do not need an engineer in most places. Any elements that step outside of those prescriptive means or methods do require engineering. If you post what you have come up with, rough location, required snow loads and frost depths I'm sure you'll get some input.
