I’m planning out the work for a DIY tear-off and re-roof of my house in Oakland Park, FL. At some point, the previous owner covered a porch by adding a section of roof that bolted to the side of the house just under the soffit of the existing overhang. The porch is nice, but the construction of the added roof section makes it difficult to do get at the boards and vent screens to maintain them.
Since I’m re-roofing anyway, I’d like to extend the roof overhands and get rid of the added portion altogether. I’m not sure how best to frame the added overhang at the corners, though. In the attached picture, the green section shows the existing roof. The blue section shows the portion I’d like to add. The red section is where I’m uncertain. How should I frame those corners?
I’m open to any other feedback as well.
