Girder

Please give us more info. Are you talking about a support beam across the front width at the roof line or do you want to design roof trusses?

Just for grins check the cost of I-joists full length vs 2x12 plus a beam. also might want to know the dead load (snow,etc.) for a roof in your area.Jim
