Being new to this site, I hope I'm posting in the proper area? We have just built a new home and would like to have a patio cover erected. Problem is the patio is ~14' X 25' and I would like it to parallel the roofline of the house. The soffets are at 9' on either side of the patio with the roof peaking at 20' in the center. I'm trying to figure out how to support all of the weight of these beams? I have a pic of the back of the house if needed.

You've got to be kidding me? How would advise cause a repercussion? If that were the case nobody here would give advise on any topic for fear of a suit. How else do you suggest we disseminate knowledge? That is why I offered to send a jpg pic to anyone who needed a better understanding of the project. I'm not sure how to simplify the question? If you saw the pic it might make more sense? I also have a crude drawing done in Visio if you have the capability to read that type of file.
