Adding a porch-like overhang on a framed shed?
Asked May 18, 2010, 08:26 PM
Hey guys... I'm in the process of building a 10x15 shed and have decided that I want a overhang of about 6 feet on one of the gable ends. Its actually on the gable end where I have a 6 foot opening for a double door. The problem is that I have already framed the building. The walls are up (no siding on this end yet) and the ridge and rafters are in place. How difficult would it be to add this overhang now? I want it to be the same pitch (5/12) as the roof. Pretty much I would just be extending the roof out 6 feet.
Here is a pic I found that is similar to my situation except I have a 2x6 ridge with 2x4 rafters. Also, there is a six foot opening on the end where the guy is standing. .
