« Part 8: Door assembled, caulking done around trim, 1st coat of paint via hand sprayer Part 9 of 6'x12' lean-too shed series no next part

Just about to call this shed project completed, almost.
All painting is complete with 2 coats on the trim/facia boards, siding, and doors. Used a little 4” paint roller for the trim. The final color is a tad more peachy than the house. Looks like if I care much, I’ll have to repaint someday to get a closer matching color.
Drip edges, roof underlayment, and 3 packs of shingles installed. My first time installing asphalt shingles. All done by hammer & nails, no air tools. The last thing that needs accomplished, is the tallest point of the shed roof peak and the shingles. Unsure how to…finalize the edge. Flashing? The black tar line is over 2” from the edge so I would have to do 3” flashing.

Final row is called the ridge cap. single tab ( 1/3 of shingle ) over lapping with only one nail at the very end not covered. Congratulations on a job well done.

Andre . I know of ridge caps related to house roofs. But those are gables. Lean to, is ridge caps/vent needed for a shed? Taking a look at images and searches, most seem to put the drip edge on top of the tiles and that’s it. My drip edge is felt paper, drip edge, tiles. Maybe I need to go felt paper, tiles, drip edge. The plans I bought are related to gabled top, not lean to , hence my….unknowing.

Great job, I’m in the middle of similar, I’m closing in the cantilever under our kitchen, a little less than 3 foot. Got the idea from a lean to shed like yours. I’ll have four double doors spanning close to 40 foot.
One “box” will be for yard tools, another will hold my soon to upgrade air compressor, Pool toys in another. lastly sawhorses and other outdoor shop things. May even work in a dust collection unit if I don’t move shop to commercial space…..

Alan…I considered outside dust collector & even air compressor. I am skittish about putting holes in the garage wall. Also, I have a heated shop and the outside DC would suck out the heat when cold.
Something I can decide on later. Hmm..maybe if I insulated the shed with the bunch of 3” closed cell foam boards I have…. hmm…

Most lean to usually butt up to another building, in your case I think I would have flashing under the shingles but on top of felt paper and leave about an inch of shingle to curl over and divert water down? I think a flashing over top of the shingles would function the best but not be all that attractive? Will it be very visible? Hindsight I guess being free standing a small peak would of solved the problem? IMO! I am not a roofer or engineer so just looking at practical solution?
