Question Building a new pergola

I am planning on building a pergola on my deck. The size will be 12'X10'. I plan on attaching 2X8 on both the 10' side and the 12'side (Attached to a stucco wall using masonry anchors) I plan on using 6X6 posts on the opposite side of the 10' wall to rest laminated 2X8s on. I plan on using 2X6 rafters in 16" centers on top of the beams anchoring them to the 10' side using joist hangers. I don't plan on placing a roof on the structure so weigh bearing calculations shouldn't come into play.
Question: Does this plan sound feasible? What changes would you suggest?

Welcome to the forums.

I'm guessing you had a list of pictures you wanted in your first thread. Those links you left are picture locations in your phone/computer. You need to actually move the pictures to the board.

This should help...... How-to-insert-pictures

A sketch or schematic would do wonders for helping us guide you in anyway we can. I do not follow your plan from words only.

The board has limits on file sizes. Loading pictures as opposed to PDF's is easier
