Problem with shed roof eaves detail

by paula nichols

I built a 14x14' lean to type shed.

I had a man put the metal roof on it because I was having seizures at that time and didn't want to climb. He extended the ends 1 and a half inches over each end but attached the side panels flush with the sides without the siding attached.

Since then osb and siding has been added and both are exposed up at the top and it won't be long after one tropical storm and future bad weather that that osb and siding will start to disintegrate.

I'm going to remove the metal panels and add 1x4's on the top of the straps to extend the sides 1 ft. on each side and reattach the metal. i've wracked my brain what to do and this seems to be the only reasonable solution to do it where the extensions are supported and secure.
