For construction of a second story screened porch with a gable roof, is it acceptable to attach the floor joists to the ledger board by resting them onto a 2x2 cleat nailed into the ledger and also toe-nailing the joists into the ledger? Can this system safely carry the load?

I have used this system for many years with no problems providing the joists are properly nailed and there is no additional load being carried by the floor system.
