I've got a 6' x 12' section of deck, just outside my front door, that I plan to enclose (a "mud room", you might say). This part of the deck is already covered by the roof of the house. I plan to put 3/4" T&G subfloor over the existing redwood deck (which is in excellent condition) and then frame it up to the existing roof. I'm a little concerned about the lower edge, where the (T1-11) siding will meet the existing deck. It seems that this spot might see a lot of moisture, and it can rain a lot here in winter (Santa Cruz mountains, in N. California). So, is there anything I could do to reduce the chances of moisture problems at the boundary between the deck and the new walls? Thanks.
