Wrap around porch
« on: August 11, 2008, 04:59:58 PM »
I'm building the 20x30 1-1/2 stor with a wrap around porch.  My question is how do you tie in the rafters of the porch with the rafters on the house.  I want to look like Nevada Mike's below......

The basic porch framing details are on Sheet 6 of your plans but you will want to play a bit with the slope of the porch roof and exactly where it hits the wall and upper roof. has the detail below that can prove helpful.

I would guess that the house above has used the detail on the right - resting the porch rafter on top of the roof sheathing of the upper roof. They have most likely clipped the rafter tails and carried the house wall up to the bottom of the porch rafter.

Note that this rafter can also climb higher up the main roof if needed.
None of us are as smart as all of us.
