What pitch do I use?

Just looking for some advice. I am building a 24x24 garage with 10ft walls. I am wondering what pitch trusses I should use without making it look awkward. Any advice or pictures would be greatly appreciate. I am having a hard time visualizing what it would look like.

I've built several, unless your trying to make it look like your primary residence then 6-12 pitch is somewhat the norm. If your planning to do the shingling yourself this is pretty easy to work with, get above that and it gets a little uncomfortable!

What is the pitch on the house's roof and other nearby buildings?

Awesome, thank you. 6/12 is what I was thinking, but was unsure. Also I will check the existing pitch of the house it is going beside.
thank you
