Lean to help

Ok here's the run down. 50x80 steel building. Want to put a lean to on the 50ft end from the second girt above the door and have the other end on a 40ft high cube shipping container, roughly 23ft away.

So building end will be 12'6" up and the other end will be ontop of shipping co trainer at 8'6". So here is my questions. I originally was planning on running some 2x12s and attaching them to the girt at building and then attach to top of shipping container. No snow load in Phoenix so only thing it will have to support is the steel sheeting for the roof.

Do I need to add supports to the girt that has a 22ft span to keep them from bowing or will they be able to support the structure. Also how would you guys suggest attaching this to the girt. Through bolt a ledger board through wall into girt that rafters will sit ontop of? Or?

Thanks.

After rereading the question no that end is not strong enough for roof. It will sag. Build it like it’s own pole shed. Sink 4 poles right next to building. Use that to hold roof up vs the steel. Good luck

With this cheap of structure could you just order another bay?

I’m not used to seeing such a wimpy structure. Those roof beams would be 24” wide in these parts.

Indeed

To answer the OP's question, it all depends on what you use for a ledger. I'm sure the right piece can be spec'd by an engineer. I take it you don't have to consider snow loads?

No, put in a few footings and columns to support it. It would need a beam or channel attached directly to your buildings columns. I don't think the building columns are designed to support the additional loading. Sure it would probably work but it's not right.

I'm going to be sheeting the inside of the shop so every 4 ft I will have a vertical support between the girt and the ground. Was thinking if I upped it to a 4x4 every 4 ft that the girt would support the roof end easily. Wouldn't be any different than putting a 4x4 post outside of the shop every 4ft in my mind.
