..........and I mean little
I was supposed to do this a while back, but my schedule and the dentists just never seemed to work out, well now the planets have aligned

This is a small storage unit right behind the dentists clinic, kind of in the alley. Inside is the compressor and cleaning filtration set up for the air tools they use in the clinic. She had this build a few years ago, to give her more room in the clinic, whomever built it used concrete board to help dampen the sound, but they did not seal it up from the weather.
The problem is the top of it is fairly flat, and water pools on this unit, and then is drips down and runs into the unit, where it is starting to cause some rot, as well as a bunch of creepy crawlies being there (which I think bugs the dentist more than the rot!!).
My first idea was to just tilt the unit back, but it is built around a platform that the guy cemented into the ground Dunno why, but it will not easily tilt back. My next idea is to just make a small second sloped roof on top of the storage unit, made from 2x2s and a corrugated roof, sloping down from back to front, over hanging the front by a few inches, to keep the rain off the flat top, then some drip rail, or "J" bead along the top, to keep water from getting to run down the face of the unit, and some kind of flap weather seal thing around the doors.
What kind of a slope should I have, like plumbing 1/4" over a foot, or a lot more?
Just about no snow loads to worry about here......
A VERY crude diagram.............
...... told you it was bad
I'm getting paid to do this, she wants it done right, as the kit in the storage unit is NOT cheap, so while I want to do it right, I don't want to go into the way, WAY overkill area.
What do you think?
