Quote from: NathanS on March 18, 2021, 01:39:41 PMPretty sure the WFCM prescriptive design calls for outriggers/ladder framing. Skip the rafter on the edge of the gable, and run a 2x8 ladder frame that is 48" long, block it solid on the gable wall. Then you can also double up the first interior rafter.Having trouble loading the WFCM right now to link the page number.

I don't think there should be much force that way.Structural hurricane screws (timberlok) would be good for uplift... and you know that the roof would never slide around on you either. The whole thing would have to roll away like a tumbleweed.
