Yup, I live in a double wide and fry things. Now I want to add a little more styling to the wood structure that sits on a steel frame, I want to add eves. I was thinking of adding about 18” to the roof line before I put new shingles up. The exterior walls are 2×6 with exterior ply panels. The roof has a gental sloop (western desert). So my question to everyone is “How the heck do i do this!”. I have thought of two dozen different ways but have not decided on just one yet so i thought I would ask all of you what your thoughts would be. I will collect the building materials over the winter and then start in the spring, (unless it gets hot in January).
