I've had the same conversation with my SE about my new garage. The existing one is 3mx6m and single skin brick with a rosemary roof (been up for 20/30 yrs). The new one is 4m x 6m and he wants double skin with steel windposts, etc.pike":36mcwjgv said:Ironically, said garage is using underspecced joists and no wall plate.... but still standing.

I was going to suggest that earlier on - but was a little unsure as to the angle of the roof, as you'd mentioned it was a lean-to.pike":3a0x9k3x said:I've had another idea. As the pitch is very low, just sit the joists on the brick and add another course inbetween them.
