I'm rebuilding an old deck the measures about 6'x12'...not real big. It's on a hillside in the backyard and plumbs out about 4' in the front and butts up against the fence/property line in the back at grade. The old covering was a lattice-type made of 2x2s. I live in the rainy Northwest, so I want to build a covered roof reflecting NW styles...perhaps shake shingles.

1. Can anyone provide advice where I can go to get some basic contruction ideas. I've never built a roof.

2. I'm also building right up to the property line. What can you tell me about setback restrictions? I read somewhere the eaves cannot extend more than 18" into the setback. Would this apply to a deck roof as well as a shed or dwelling?

Have a look at my on-line projects, I think the "gardening Barn" would be the best for what you're after?

Set-backs are local here in town it's 3' side 20 back 30 front, the county is 15 side 30 front 25 back... but you can go into 10 if you use firewalls.

The overhang(eave) is the setback here.

Most places you can do a landscape deck right to the fence though, which is under 30 inches (again that's here that's a local one too)

.. so what it comes down to is giving the building dept in your area a shout on the phone, the girl at the desk will probably know the set backs.

I know when I was up in the NW in the cities they wanted to get us away from building with shakes, due to fire (same here in CA) they require A rated roofs now, you may want to check that out to... the shed burns taking down the house, the insurance company would LOVE ya for putting up the shed, as they sniggle & laugh on their merry way to their massive bank vault...
