Fastest cheapest way, is to contact a nearby truss manufacturer, and have them design it,,, It will be done in less than 30 minutes!

Agree with Rick, whilst you can find kinds of engineering tables for this sort of thing, interpretation is something always that should be done by a PE in structural engineering - and one with a specialism in timber construction.

If your going to live under it I would get a pro builder or engineers opinion. In general, not to do down the expertise here, free advice is worth what you pay for it.

In a safety critical area pay for the information.
