Single slope pergola for outdoor kitchen

Postby TerryP56 » Tue Sep 13, 2022 8:07 am

I’m about to start a build of an outdoor kitchen which has a single sloping roof.
I have planned to use double beams 6x2 timbers at the front, high point and back, low point. The slope is only 7 degrees across front to back.
I can work out how to birdsmouth the rafters on one of the rafters at front and back but I’m struggling to work out how on earth I work out how to birdsmouth the other two beams.
Has anyone any idea I position the cuts without ruining all my rafters?
