Here’s a little roof extension over a patio me and @straightnochaserr did for a good friend of ours, the extension was 20x16 with five 4x4’s bolted into the concrete patio using @strongtie brackets giving it the maximum support it needed. Project was finished in two days and is now ready for roofing! @strongtie #simpsonstrongtie#dewalttools#roofoverhang#watchmego
