Attaching Porch Ledger to House
I’m currently in the design phase of a modern cabin. I will have a porch roof that extends about 12 feet out and covers a deck. The problem is I don’t have a rim/band joist to attach to (the porch ledger will be located about 11 feet up on a 14 foot wall). So I’m wondering what the best practice is in this situation. It seems like attaching to studs won’t do the job. Can I just install 2×10 interior blocking between my studs to attach to?
