I recently purchased a 100+ year old home in Connecticut. Attached to the rear of the home is a 18x20 addition. I believe the space was originally a garage that was later coverted into an in-law apt. After demoing the room, I noticed that the roof is framed with full dimensional 2x4's, 24"OC. The roof is pitched quite low and I'm concerned about snow load. Suggestions? My thought is to sister 2x8's.

Thanks !
