Step four: the roof frame
Centralize the two ridge supports [i] on top of the two end frames and fix in an upright position.

Balance the ridge beam [j] on top of the ridge supports [i] and fix in place with nails skewed (angled) through the ends of the ridge beam into the supports.

Fix the 10 common rafters [k] in place (5 each side) beginning with the end rafters and then the intermediates.

Fix the lean-to rafter supports [m] in place at the lower end of the top rafters [k]. (See diagram below.)

Fix the lean-to rafters [l] in place on top of the lower rafter supports [m], and so that the top of the lean-to rafters [l] are at a point 12 3/4" up from the bottoms of the top rafters [k]. (See diagram below.)
