The simplest frames that I have built have involved a ridgepole and hinged rafters. By hinging all of the rafters on the ridgepole, the angles don't really matter. You build it by putting up the ridgepole (2X6 or something) then attaching measuring each rafter(2X2 or something) and screwing it into the ridgepole. The key to the setup is making 2 or 3 good mounts for the ridgepole so that it cannot twist. When you want to remove the cover, you simply lift up and all of the rafters swing together.
