I want to build an eave over a small porch or landing outside the back door.
I'd like to make it without posts or support pillars. Its on the gable end
of the house so there is no existing roof line to work off of. I'd like to
make it 8' wide and 4' wide. I'm on Long Island so snow loading is an issue.
I don't want to tear up any flooring to be able to sister joists a long way
back. About all I can do is take off the sheathing, and see how far I can
Can I cantilever out this far without support?
The plan would be to build a small hip roof over it. Also, what is typical
for roof sloping on an eave?
