Adding Gable Roof Over Porch

Need some advise on cutting back the soffits for the gable roof I am putting over my porch, should I add more support to the trusses if I am cutting back the soffits? Everything I read tells me to connect the Rim joist to the ledger. When up in the attic the trusses are sitting on the wall studs. House is single level ranch built in the 60's.... Where would I connect a ledger to?

Porch Roof

Give us more info about what you are wanting to do. Do you have a porch roof now? Will the new porch roof be at right angles to the existing house roof?

I want to cover my new porch that is 94 w X 72... There was railing and awning over the old porch. So I would need to put a intersecting gable roof to cover the new porch. I am going to run the 6x6 post into so no tunes then build a stone base around the post
