Hi, I 'm building a run, half covered, half uncovered. I've finished the covered section which I did use blocking for. The uncovered section is 8 x 9. It's 7 ft. in the front and 5'8 in the back. I have a 2 x 8 rafter at the end of the covered section where the uncovered section starts. No post in the middle. I have a post in the middle at the other end. I'm using 2 x6's 24 OC in case I want to add corrugated roofing down the road. We have very high winds. I'm wondering if I should be blocking between the rafters on the open run. It will cause the wind to catch the roof as it's facing straight into the wind. I'm planning on putting wire on top, or even just netting, to keep hawks out. I thought about angling the blocks so the wind rides around them. Do I have to have the blocking? If i attach them at an angle will it still serve the same structural purpose? Thanks! p.s. One of the rafters on the right there is missing, it was bowing so I took it down to see if I can get it to straighten out. You can see the hanger on the back 2 x 6 where it goes. So three rafters across the middle, attaching to the top of the left side and on the underside of the 2 x 8 on the right side. Makes sense?
