I am interested in building a shed. I already have an 8×10 12″ thick concrete pad poured as my foundation. I am interested in building a shed with a roof pitch of 6/12 or 8/12 to replicate a Williamsbug style design. How do I calculate the rafter length for the 8×10 shed based on the pitch? Also, how do I secure the ridge beam so that I can attach the rafters? Thanks.
