So...we're working on our 8x12 coop. We got the floor done (with some help from the forum!) and we're now debating the roof. We want a single slope roof going from 8' to 6'. I've seen pictures using 2x4's, will that be sturdy enough? We do get snow but never more than a few inches at a time, so I'm not too concerned about that load. And I've been reading about notching the rafters to fit on the top plate vs using rafter hangers. Neither of is is terribly handy, so I'm a little concerned about cutting notches and getting them lined up properly.
