Shed roof design for Seaside Beach house in Nashville

Adding a shed roof to side of house and was interested in ideas to make it look like it was intentional


Adding shed roof,26 ga uge 5 v crimp. 3/12 pitch considered although rest is 12/12. 2 x 4 in photo is about location of 12 foot pieces.I thought I should match existing overhang .

Roof is to be about2 feet below octagon window.

Need larger foot porch to keep front dry

This is the overhang. Planned to match it and maybe wrap around other end about 12 inches Any thoughts?..

Wouldn't your initial designs, the plans used to gain the permit, already have all this relevant information contained in them?

I'm not sure I understand what your question is. Even though the roof pitch is different as long as the materials and finishes are the same it should look like original construction. IMO the biggest concern would be how you plan to flash the roof next to the siding.

btw - welcome to the forums!

Thank you for any advice

The original house was built 30 years ago.
I guess my initial question was if the roof pitch being different was a hugh issue but would be difficult to add a shed roof with a12/12 pitch
I plan on carefully removing the siding for the ledger board and using correct flashing supplied by the metal manufacturer I was planning on ending the metal flush with the corner board but everyone thought it should match the existing roof above it.
I believe I am answering my own questions but feel free to comment
thanks

If you drive around town and look you will find more than one house that has a porch roof that is not as steep as the rest of the house.
