Shed Roof Support Beam

Getting to hot outside, time for a break. I wasn't going to document this build but there seems to be some interest, and I haven't been insulted for my construction methods (yet,lol), so I will continue with updates.

I have built many shed type roofs over the years. A strong outboard support beam is important when the roof is not supported by a stud wall on a continuous foundation. Long time ago I worked out a offset H beam ( offset to fit the slope of the roof) that supports the roof very well, with no sag or deformation. I have never had a problem with it, a little overbuilt but the only problem with overbuilt is taking it apart if you change your mind lol.

Here,s some pictures.






So on to the roof, try to get in a few more hrs. today. If I get some more work done tomorrow I'll post again tomorrow.
