Storage Shed Addition
by Paul A. Buechler
I have a gambrel roof storage shed, 12' x 18'. I want to add a sloping sidekick additional storage area to one side of the shed, about 18' x 21' (flat roof). Part of the addition will be enclosed and part will be an unenclosed carport. What is the best way to intersect with the gambrel roof? I need to attach high enough to provide a slope for the flat roof addition.
Most additions of this type that I have seen are tied into a wall that is high enough to provide slope with room for flashing on the high end. In my case, the flat roof would be attached half way up the gambrel roof.
These sidekick images would not give enough height on the low side:
My barn is similar to these:
Thanks for your help.
