I haven’t gotten my timber framing book yet, so I haven’t really figured out how big my beams and rafters are going to be yet. Though I doubt I’ll be using 12”x16” beams. Or 4”x8” rafters. It’s going to be relatively small. 10’x10’ at the most.

The wife only wants some tinted, corrugated plastic as the roof because she wants to still be able to see the trees and sky. So it won’t be that heavy until it snows. And that’s what I have to account for.
