NOTE: The plans differ slightly from Jaime's build to have the floor built first, with upper framing built on top. See Jaime's post here on how she kept her legs longer, building the floor into the legs.
Build the floor, using pocket holes for the inner floor joists and 3" screws for the outer front 2x4s. Adjust for square. Place the floor in it's final position now, level if necessary or place on pier blocks and bolt down.
Notch all of the leg tops as shown above. See That's My Letter's build post for photos and details on how she notched her 4x4s.
Attach legs on top of 4x4 with Simpson Strong Tie post upright connector or 5" lag screws from underneath or pocket holes on the two inside sides.
Notch the main gable roof 4x4 pieces as shown. Then set together, lapping joints at peak and legs. Use 3" screws on insides and outsides to join.
Add decking with 1/2" spacing in between decking boards. Screw down with 3" screws.
Attach the rafters to the 4x4 ends with pocket holes.
