Big timber Patio for Mike, post's are 6x6,  beams, headers are 6x12, and the roof joists are 4x6.  The patio is free standing and not touching the house. The high side of the patio is further away from the house and the low side is next to the house, opposite of most patios we have put up.  In 40 some years, this is only the second of this fashion. I need to go back and get some finished pictures, its really a cool look.....
