Thanks.
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.

I agree. I read too fast and missed the part about building against the house and picked up second post on building by fence.

I probably should edit for snow loads also. I'm guessing you have more snow than we get in KY.

Sorry for confusion,
jon

I started out with that idea in mind last year. It grew and grew. Finally I built a 18' X 18' cover over part of my patio. I can smoke under it, and keep my smokers and firewood dry too. Even got a picnic table under it.

If there's anything better than having dry wood, it's being able to smoke when you want to, not when the weather lets you.

Here are some pic's of the one I just had redone. It shows the construction and the way it's attached to the house. I did have flashing and shingles overhang the metal where it attached to the house.









Hope this helps. Good luck with the project.

I had a salvaged door awning that I set up free standing on 4X4s that works well. The comment about making it deeper is a good one. Don't want to stand in the drip line while tending the pit. The thing I did that worked out real well was to mount a 2 foot strip of plastic lattice along the back, then with S hooks I hang my tools, paper towels, racks, etc. Helps keep an unorganized person organized!

Only one critical comment on your proposed setup is ----Your smokers are too clean - get smokin

-24"x60" 1/2" plywood storage with a fold down door for the Weber to rest on.
-not to scale but close

Wow would you come build it for me too ?
We do have drainage issue and flooding basements here. So it would not be draing back to the house.

I won't show you guys our covered flagstone patio (20 x40), recessed lights, speakers. Off limits to smokers since my offset will drip grease and ruin the roof with smoke.

I understand. I built my area and promptly rolled the smokers outside. I'm now looking at adding on a small screen area with gravel so I don't mess up the new concrete.

This has already been said, but I want to put in another vote for making the overhang more than 4 feet. If you are going to go to all the trouble of putting in a roof - you may as well have one you can stand under comfortably during inclement weather.
