I feel you on the SWMBO comment. But if this is her space, then surely she has a say in the look. My wife usually puts aesthetics before function and practicality. As such, she does make my surroundings more beautiful.

It’s good to hear you are following Reed’s advice. I whole heartedly agree. There are several options for the eaves. Barge rafters, outriggers, and a simple fly rafter. I would use one of the former if your overhang is greater than 12”.
