OK you guys have been great I have another one for ya.


I am building a shed in the back yard......

Behind my garage I have a perfect spot . I can put a 12x12 shed and only have to build 2 walls to do it.


Basically I am going to attach the 2 walls to the back of the garage and to the side of the house, then I can continue the roof line right down....... My delema is how do I attach to the stucco, and be water tight?

I have had Ideas of taking a circular saw, and cutting out the stucco where the roof will attach to the house. This way I can get the flashing under the stucco as if it were built that way, then no leaks in the shed.




But do you guys have any better ideas?
PS don't worry about the Central unit I am having that moved to the other side of the house. Also do you think I need to pour footings for this application? Most times a shed on pad is ok but this will be attached to the home. Thanks.

It's pretty tough to get flashing up under stucco, there are nails in the wire and it's all pretty tight to the roof. What I've done in similar situation is to cut a groove about 3/8" to 1/2" deep in the stucco above the new roofline by four inches or so. Build your roof. Run wall flashing up the wall 3" (so you're an inch below the groove) and down the roof 5" or so. Then install your counter flashing: make, or have made, a piece of flashing called a reglet. This is three inches high with a 90 degree bend at the top to go into the groove. Got me so far? The other part that is harder to describe: the 90 degree bend that will sit in the groove actually is bent back on itself so that when you press it into the groove filled with sealant the sharp edge of the reglet grabs the stucco and stops it from pulling out. Put a few screws in and it's sealed. Maybe you should look up "Reglet" it's not a tricky thing just hard to describe.

As to footings or a pad, you could always pour a monolithic pad, are you doing permits and all that? You'll soon find out what you have to do if you are.

What a great idea, I will have to put that in my memory bank for sure.

Yes very good I dea.......Stucco is great until you have to add something to the house........I am going to add a covered porch area on the back and it is gonna be the same thing.

Any other Ideas? This one sounds pretty good.

Thanks

Found some pics, I'm finding it is hard to decribe this stuff.

You can also buy the right stuff, which is extruded Al. which you screw and caulk to the wall then a reglet is slotted into that with a rubber wedge/gasket. I've never bought any but I bet it's not cheap. If you image-google "reglet", you'll know more about reglets than most and you'll have cocktail party conversation for years to come. (And no friends)

Thanks very much, I have found many sites about these.......This is looking like the best Idea.
