The roof is actually an awning over and exterior garage door. This project is probably more construction related than a woodworking project but there are some good joints in it. Since in Southern California we don’t have a snow load requirement we used the Rico load to test it. That’s my brother Rico also a LJ sitting on the little roof. We built it in the shop and lag screwed the large joint together and made rabbet joints to cover the end grain of the ledger. We attached the thing with 4 half inch lags to the side of the house and then we applied the cedar shake shingles. Had to use 6×6’s and resaw them to the 4×5 inch dimension we needed to match the existing roof. Most of the cuts were made using a skill saw and a hand saw.
