Any tips to improve this woody design? 9-Jul-2016 At 11:28:19 AM TimP
I'd go exterior ply instead of marine ply to save a bit of money. Both have waterproof glue but marine ply has the guarantee of no voids like a knot-hole in one of the laminations, important in a boat where you are making cuts to form planks etc. but not critical if you are using full sheets. Also plan around 2.4 x1.2m sheets for material efficiency and framing support at sheet joins. I like Austral ply as their products are made from plantation Hoop Pine, a QLD native.
Don't forget flashing on the top beam against the wall, and yes roof members are under tension so steel strap or all-thread to tie it well to the top beam against the wall, which should be dimensioned for that out-pulling load.
