This very long verandah links directly into the oak framed garden room via a continuously scarfed wall plate.  This will create a shaded oudoor space on a very sheltered but South facing wall.

The roof above the verandah has yet to be built, so a little imagination required!

Here we have one of the stubby wall plate scarfs, used to connect the timbers end-to-end whilst maintaining structural integrity.
