In reply to Roof Joists by lenn on July 27th, 2000 02:36 PM [Go to top of thread]

Lenn, I would suggest using 2 x 6 joists and having them 24 inches OC.

I would also use a 2 x 6 or 2 x 8 ledger board against the house bolted on and then use joists hangers for the roof joists to hook up to.

4 x 4's would be sufficent for the beams and the spacing of the posts have allot to do with what will fall on your roof. Are you in a snow area?

Normally, I would think that 3 posts would be fine, but the snow and ice is another factor.
