Portico attachment detail, and can it be stubbed for later?
I’d like to build a portico like the one pictured. This is new construction and we are at house wrap on, installing windows phase. Next comes siding.
1. I can’t find any details online on how these actually attach to the house (in terms of structural support). The front is held by posts, but I can’t see what holds up the house side of the beams. Does anyone have a detail/plans they can share for the beam to wall attachment? The fasteners appear to be hidden somehow.
2. Is it possible to “stub out” the part of the portico that attaches to the house so we can proceed with siding and get that on, then build the rest of the portico at a later time? ie. just install the part of the portico that requires flashing with the siding?
The house is 2×6 wood frame, slab on grade, siding will be pine chink.
