Matching and extending a roof line


I have a lean to add on porch and would like to extend existing roof to cover this flat roof. I am wondering if I could extend rafters on one side of existing roof to bring center of roof in line and keep more pitch on added roof to cover porch . I did not know if it is feasible to extend a rafter like I am wanting to do. It looks like less than 6 ft need to be added.

I guess I was asking if anyone had seen this type of thing done. I know bolting added rafter stock and bracing is not that big a deal just thought I could make roof line side to side match a little closer and get some more fall on the new roof section that will extend over the porch.

Only if your definition of "interest" is "butt ugly".
