Question
Is it possibe to strenthen the beams of the ext corner so as not to have a post directly under it(2meters away) and not going to far back in the roof cavity. 8m*3m. guttering and poly laserlight.
Thanks.

Answer
I will need to have more information. Above the corner you want to extend 2m or about 6 feet will there be a second story with a room above it or just a roof? What is the size of the existing beams you want to extend? 2'x6', 2'x 8' or larger? How far can you go into the into the roof cavity. Is there access to the existing beams now either from above or below? Or will have to to slide the extended support beams into the opening on the side?
