entrance canopy

Hi guys,

I'm looking to build an entrance canopy over a front door. I'm leaning more toward the shed roof style as opposed to a gable style. I don't want to use any support posts to hold up the end, the front of the house will support all the weight with the use of braces. I would like the roof to extend out about 36". Does anyone have any plans for building this type of roof or does anyone know where I can find plans for building this?
