Building Enclosed Patio
 
2 Attachment(s)

I currently have an existing 10'X10 covered patio on a 20X30 patio. I'm planning to extend the covered patio to the end of the chimney right before the window (desired measurement 20X25) and enclose that portion. The remaining 5X20 I just plan to cover it. Pictures attached.

I'm debating in which way to make it happen.

1. I can tear down the existing covered patio and start from scratch. Probably the most expensive one. or;

2. I can attach it to the existing patio and to the house.

How do I attach to the existing roof and the house which allows me to have an uniform slope.

If cost is not the issue, I would start over by removing just the roof section of your porch and leaving the posts and joists you have. You can just extend the new beam and posts over to where they need to go and install a roof section with a smaller pitch.
Or you can do something like this picture.
