Proper Way to Attach a Porch Roof to the House
Hello All- it has been a while since I have been on this forum. I am gladded nothing has changed, a lot of great posts.
I am starting my next project. I am tearing out my cement stairs and replacing with wooden stairs and adding a roof over it.
I need to know the best way to tip the roof back into the house. I want to extend the current roof over the stairs. Where the current roof intersects the houses is between floors, so I do not believe I have a ledger board to attach to. (red line on sketch roof_one.jpg).
Do I need to add horizontal joists to connect the rafters back to the house? (green line on sketch roof_two.jpg)
