Garage Addition Taller Than Existing Roof Tie In Question

I have a existing garage that has 9' side walls(30x40 building) with a 4/12 pitch so the highest point is 14' at the peek. The trusses run the 30' direction. I have built a 24x40 addition with 12' sidewalls (4/12 pitch so 16' tall peek) running perpendicular to the existing structure. I have 2 suggestions for the roof tie in but not sure which to go with. I can run the new walls across the old roof to where they meet level and it will have a small peak in the middle with small valleys. My 2nd option is to stop roof with 1' overhang over old building and then drop down to 13' and run a ridge board level to the existing roof and still have a 4/12 pitch on this part. Then i would have 2 longer valleys emptying on each side of the new structure. I guess my question s which would be the better solution?
