add a shed roof to existing wall


Hello, everyone

I would like to build a simple shed in a corner where two exterior walls meet. The house is sided with horizontal lap siding. To flash the rake side of the roof to the wall, is there a way to do it without removing the siding? Thanks for your help.

Loosen all the nails. And don't nail within 4" of roof. It's time consuming to do it right, but it's worth it.

If you don't do it right, you will be fighting leaks all of the time. Whoever built my storage building, built it exactly like you describe. However, they didn't do the flashing as suggested in the previous post. I will be tearing the storage off and building something new soon. I have tried repairing it too many times.
