Change a roof overhang to a ledge or catwalk.

Wondering if someone has changed their 1st floor roof overhang to a ledge or catwalk to help with maintenance on the 2nd floor exterior. The existing is a wooden 3 feet wide overhang with 5/12 slope with roofing material. I would like to make it a 4 feet wide and as light as possible with no support columns.

Any suggestions on materials and design in utilizing the existing?

That's what they make ladders and walk boards for.
What your suggesting would require the wall and inside floors to all come apart.

Plus that would greatly increase the chance of damage to the outside walls.
