To anyone.

 

I've got a roof overhang (see picture) at the bottom of a gable end wall.  Does anyone know the best way to frame a roof/overhang like this?

 

I'm wondering how to support the roof weight?

Thanks,

Peter

Peter,

The house plan I am looking at has a front porch with the same sort of gabled overhang. The plan shows posts to bear the weight.

Jim

You might be able to support the upper overhung section on cantilevered TJI's that frame the floor for the second floor.  In my area, an engineered set of drawings would be required to build this.

TrusJoist has their TJI specifiers manual in .pdf format online, which tells what cantilevers are allowable.  A couple of feet is usually doable easily.

Jim and John,

I decided the way to support the roof required multiple approaches (and a little overkill). 

Similar to John's comment, the deck has cantilevered rafters that extend out past the roof line.  The porch is curved.  I made a 1 1/2 rim board that curves with the deck (out of layers of plywood).  The roof rafters at their top are nailed into the rim board supporting the middle part of the roof.  At the ends of the roof where there is wall above the roof, I put a 2x16 nailed horizontally to the wall and tied the tops of the roof rafters into it.  I was going to use Fypon for the knee brackets (which are not structural), but decided instead to use doug fir and they are now support the roof along it's length.  Lastly, the fascia nailer was 2x8 and I used 2x6's for the ceiling joists.  I used 2x12 for the roof rafters.  Since the span was only 48", I could have used 2x6's, but I liked having lots of meat to nail at the top and the bottom of the rafter.

While I was framing the porch, I spent lots of time walking on the fascia nailer and it didn't move a bit.  And if I don't say so myself, it's a really neat porch with the curve intersecting the roof line.  Very cool.

Thanks, for the input....

Peter
