Shed roof.

Due to locsal codes the only place in my yard to build a shed is under my deck.

I want to put a 10 X 12 shed under there but the only problem I have is the roof. I will put a flat one on it with enough pitch to let rain water run off. But the question is how do I cover the wood I will be using for the roof. It will be very close to the underside of the deck and I will not be able to physically get in there to nail shingles on the roof.

Any ideas.

Any posts or support beams in the way?

You can build the roof on the ground
Maybe hinge the side near the house
Then raise it up in place & build the walls under it
Build the frame & use some hinges to attach it to the house
So the back (HIGH SIDE) near the house would be attached
Roof would slope from there down to theground
Sheath it & shingle it
Then swing it up & support the front
Then build the walls etc under it
That's how I would do it

8' high would give you a 2' drop
