negative eaves on ends

we "inherited" a shed project. the shed has 2" eaves on the ends, however once the final siding etc goes on, we'll end up with negative eaves by a quarter to half inch or so. the shed is currently roofed with plywood and we were hoping to get shingles on before the winter (ie tomorrow) to protect the plywood. Is there a viable quick fix here or not so much?
thanks very much

negative eaves on ends

Well I don't recommend this to use on any other project because anything on the roof should lap over anything on the side. With out seeing a pic I would cut the eve off and then cut the siding and trim flush with the roof. The drip edge will then go over that nicely.
