    The roof is planned to be a pitched gable side to side.
    Parapets are need because we are building right on the boundary.
    What's the best way to sit the roof ?
    Straps ?
    A beam bolted to the wall ?

    The same way a pitched roof sits on any wall. Then you build around it, is one way. As thre drawing is another.

    Btw, you don't need a parapet just because the wall is on the boundary. What you need is a designer with a clue.
