I dont know how wide your patio is, so I'm going to
say its X wide.
You may have a drive way (flat area) draw a line on
the floor about the lenght of X, on the one side draw
another line at 90deg, ( thats the wall (house) side)
Take the size of the header beam and draw that on the other
end of the X line.( this is called full size layout)
When you draw all this on your drive way you will see
what I'm trying to tell now take a offcut of
the lumber (nice word that) that you will use as a rafter
this will be a template for you birdsmouth, play with it
till you think it's right, and away you go.
Have fun.
