Patio attachment


Recommended Posts

I'm assuming that this is a shed roof with no shear walls. If that's the case the ledger should be bolted or lagged to existing framing.

The bolt schedule would vary with anticipated wind loads, snow loads etc, but you'd be surprised at how many fasteners this application may call for.

JLC had a very good article about a year ago (use the search feature) on attaching decks to homes, which is what this is albeit with less live load.
