Evening all,

I'll try make this my last post for now as I've asked a lot of questions this weekend :)

We're planning on building a porch with a hipped roof.

The porch will be 1200 out and 3000 across.

We shall be using plain tiles and was wondering should I pitch it at 35 degrees or should I Mimick the house which I think is 38 degrees.

Other question is how do I measure where the hip rafter goes on the house wall, would I measure 1200 across the wall plate to create a 90 degree angle? And put the commons inside of this line?

Hope this makes some kind of sense ..

Thank you everyone
