In the playhouse structure I posted, we did go with 16” oc rafters, but it was purely for aesthetic purposes. We cut a simple quarter rounded end cut on the tails, and wanted more rafters to exhibit that feature. Structurally, if no heavy snow load is likely, there is no reason to spend the money. If the structure is purely utility, I’d save the twenty bucks.

I have very limited experience and knowledge as it pertains to fine joinery, but as for rough framing, I have quite a bit of experience.
