Artifacts from a renovation…
Back door and patio door intersect the edge of a roof line awkwardly. I’d like to extend the roof horizontally on either side of the house to cover these doors. This is primarily for aesthetic reasons, as there is roof above these areas on the second story.
House is close to 100 years old and has open soffits. I’m not sure if I can frame the ~32" extension, screw it to the existing joist and maybe add 2 joist hangers onto the stucco, then flash the stucco somehow (zip?), or if I need a ledger board or some other means of affixing to the house and flashing.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
