    Default pergola framing ?

    i am planning on adding brackets on the end wall of my addition that stick out 3' and creating a pergola roof to block some sun. I didn't want to run tall header beams but maybe a double or triple 2x6 or 2x8....
    how far apart can I span these brackets? thanks

    Default Re: pergola framing ?

    Living in Southern California, I know how precious shade is.

    There are various awning ideas around, but they all have a common basic way to attach to the building.

    In your example, without seeing it, I would say, have a bracket every 16". Just make sure it can support the load.
