What size glulam

I want to attach a shed roof to the back of my house. It will a 5/12 pitch with a depth of 12' from the house. I want to use 2 x 8 roof rafters. What size glulam or similiar beam should I use to span the eave of 19' ? The beam will be supported by architectural columns.

Welcome to the forums! At what spacing will you have your columns? You say "architectural". will they support weight? What sort of support will they be sitting on? You may only need a 2x10 band to accept the 2x8's, but we'll need more answers.
