Porch construction guide
« on: May 09, 2012, 05:28:45 PM »
There isn't anything in the codebook regarding the construction of porches and their roofs, technically engineering required. This is how one jurisdiction has worked around that, their own prescriptive guidelines. Good pics and tables, adjustment may be needed for heavier snow or wind  ;)

That's good info to have reference to.

I'll just have to remember where it is parked.   :-\
Just because something has been done and has not failed, doesn’t mean it is good design.
