    Not sure if this should be posted here or on the building forum so decided to try here first !

    I am looking to extend my existing flat garage roof by approx 2m in length

    Its worth mentioning that i am link detached

    When the house was built, the joists between myself and my neighbor were installed by seemingly smashing holes in the brickwork on both properties and cutting a notch out of the joists
    Rather than adopting this same method, my thought was to bolt 2m batten joists along both mine and my neighbors walls, and then use some joist hangers for the cross joists before boarding

    Can anyone confirm if this is an acceptable approach and any regs around the size and type of wood required for my proposed wall and cross joists please ?

    Thanks in advance
