Combinations roof window install (Fakro)

    Hi , looking for some structural advice for the install of a double combination roof window.

    I'm mostly focused on the vertical upright post that's going to take the weight of the double rafter coming down between the 2 windows. Whats the best way to do this. It's block built with a 200mm cavity and I've currently just joisted it. The post can be no bigger than 100mm wide to accommodate flashings. I've added a pic of a different job,where the inner leaf is studded out.

    My thoughts are shutter where the post should be located and bed an galvanized T anchor into get, letting it about 300mm proud. Then sandwich two 6x2s around it.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated 👍
