I think he's saying put a 4x4 in the ground, put a 2x10 (or whatever) on top to make a "T", and then add angled supports from the 2x10 back down to the post (a "Y"). I'm guessing per lings is perlins, which would run the opposite direction of your "T's" and support the metal roof.
I would also NOT slope the roof towards the house. That's asking for foundation issues.
