rafters

Span, pitch, design, MATH. Its really pretty simple once you have some details. What is the span the rafters will cross, i.e between the walls perpendicular to the ridge. What is your desired, or specified pitch. As you say its going to be a porch, will one end be at the house with a ledger? With some info, it really is some pretty simple math. P.S. do you have a framing square. Can't cut rafters without one.
