The architect we are working for wants to have a 2-6" +/- glulam that cantilevers off of the end of a masonry wall supporting a roof for a pool building. The rest of the roof is glulams cantilevering on each end, spaced about 8' O.C. we have about 26 psf DL and 35 psf SL.
My main issue is how to detail this connection to preclude the possibility of splitting. Has anyone done something like this before?
