I am going to be building an gable roof open structure over my patio outside. Right now i have a 14×17 slab. Im wanting to expand it to roughly 17×20. I just have a few questions on materials so i can price materials at this point. Would 6×6 pt’d post suffice. (This will be free standing but close to the house)
For the roof structure would 2×6 framing lumber work? I could use pt’d lumber on the outside.
What are people using on the roof ? Osb or plywood?
Does anybody have a picture or a link of just a basic gable roof structure with open sides? I have been looking all over google and all i can find is structures that are decorative not really what im looking for. Thanks
