This bracket style house is very common around New Orleans, but the overhang is most often about 3' to 4' deep. I've drawn the overhangs as much as 4' before without any issue, but this client wants something in the 6' to 8' range. The brackets are usually 'reclaimed' so I'm working off the assumption that the antique brackets are just decorative. I'm just curious if any of you guys have designed anything like this, or if you have any thought on how you would frame this.
ETA: This house will be in south Louisiana and snow load isn't a factor.
