Attaching pergola to house?

Posted by natsis (My Page) on

We would like to build a pergola over a patio outside a sliding glass door. I would like it to be attached to the house on one side and 2 posts on the opposite side. The soffit enclosing the rafters comes right above the sliding door so there is no room to attach a ledger board above the door. The fascia board has a gutter attached to it. Any ideas how to attach the pergola given these restraints?

Thanks, Julie
