adding back porch
i want to add a porch to the back of my house. i have never added on to a house before so this is new to me. the pitch of my roof is about 150. i need to know how i would add this on without making the roof too flat (causing leaks) and without it being too close to the ground at the far end. any suggestions would be a great help. thanks

dont know wth 150 is but if you cant continue the pitch and have proper head room and a more flat pitch is either not acceptable code wise or aesthetics wise than why not build it as a dormer type roof?

A picture of the proposed area would help me.
