  1. Construct new roof adjacent to existing building.
  2. Cut your existing wall sheeting at the appropriate point.
  3. add additional battens intenally to connect wall sheets and an apron flashing too.
  4. insert apron flashing and begin cutting out the individual roof sheet profiles.
  5. Fasten top of apron flashing and refasten wall sheeting along top of apron.
  6. Fasten apron flashing down onto new roof.
  7. Refasten to new batten the wall sheets under the new roof back to existing shed.
  8. make sure to clean up mess from grinder cutting so it doesnt rust the sheeting.

Now you can save time, mess and materials by using Skillion Seal from Campbell Shed Products.
