I’d notch and bolt the wood on the rear beams. Wouldn’t be too much difficulty to do it. The bolts alone might hold but it’s not the recommended way to put beams together.

That being said, if you’re in NY did you consider the snow load on that roof? I live in Maine and have built covered pergolas (with four legs) and still I sweat it.

You could place bolted on Supports on the front ends of the roof, installed in the fall before the snow arrives.

-- The smell of wood, coffee in the cup, the wife let's me do my thing, the lake is peaceful.
