covered patio near house suggestions

Hello,

I currently have a deck that I'm considering building a roof for. I've attached a photo of an idea of what we would like to build. It will be a basic frame with tinted pvc roof paneling. So, my question is, how do we marriage this to the eave of the house, or do we? We prefer to close off the house end of the patio roof, but are open to ideas. We live in Montana so the 4-5 months of snow is the reasoning behind the slope of the patio roof. Any suggestions are appreciated. ThanksName:  outside2.jpg

Welcome to the forums! Yeah some programs just don't cooperate. You would extend your ridge onto your existing roof, removing shingles in the triangle as you go so you can re weave them back in once the structure is built. I don't know of any way you can incorporate hard panel roofing into a shingle roof like what you describe. I know your design calls for the translucent panels, but with your snow load, I really don't think it would benefit you. I am assuming your house has shingles. You could build in a couple of high curb skylights on the roof if that would help with the ambient lighting.

No way would I ever suggested using those cheap plastic panels!.
Use 6 X 6's for the post.
There going to need footings not just mounted to the slab.
A whole lot easyer to have all the fashia's be at the same level, not like that picture shows.

thanks chandler, the high curb skylights are a good idea. so aside from that, if we want a more open setting, we'll want to lean towards a pergola?

thanks again for your help.

Yes, a free standing pergola would be nice and would not infiltrate your house's envelope.
