The pieces of wood sticking out the sides will be 6ft long and come together to form a triangular shape. Two of these triangle shapes are then bolted together to form a peaked roof.

Here is a photo of the system disassembled so you can see the different parts and how they join together using 2 bolts:

The ridge beam is an 9ft long piece of wood that attaches to a wooden block via a bolt that screws into a barrel nut embedded in the block as shown below:
