Gable roof extended for porch?
I'm preparing some plans for a tiny cabin (16x2) I plan to build. The house will have cathedral ceilings, and as such a ridge beam of 3x LVL (continuously supported to foundation etc.).
I'm wondering if I can have the ridge beam cantilever out and hence extend out the roof for a back porch. Is that acceptable by code?
Attached is a pic. Thanks for your advice!
