How measured and quoted: displayed sizes are to the outside face of the posts. For example, a 10'-4" x 12'-4" size measures 10ft 4in x 12ft 4in to the outside face of the posts. The rafters and runners extend past the post edge 16" on all sides, giving you a much larger coverage area. This means a 10'-4" x 12'-4" size has an overall roof span and coverage area of 13'-0" x 15'-0".
Width x Length: Width (W) = the span of the 2x6 rafters. Length (L) = the span of the 2x8 main beams.
Number of posts: beams can span 16ft from the outside face of one post to the outside face of the other. Therefore the largest size that has only four posts is a 16' x 16'. Spans longer than 16ft require a middle post.
