Lean to Shed

by Mai Savage
(London, England)

I want to build a lean to shed along the side of my house- which is the side passage to the back garden.

It is narrow, 2.5 ft.

I don't know whether it is best to slope the roof away from the side of the house or along the length of the roof?

Also the house is brick and I concerned about the best method to use for flashing and about guttering.

Hi Mai,

Thanks for your question. I have a couple more questions for you!

What happens at the boundary of this passage down the side of your house? Is it a fence or is the neighbours’ house wall?

Also what is the purpose of this shed? Is it just to cover the walkway and access will still be required or is it going to block the passageway?
