Unhappy Flashing to Log Wall

Hi, all!

I'm new to this forum, but I have a problem with a house I recently purchased. It is a log home with a "stick" breezeway connected to one side. The breezeway roof is gable, with flashing against the log side wall of the house. Rain is apparently getting behind the flashing and running down into the breezeway. What kind of flashing or other protection should be used to prevent this? Someone suggested "double" flashing, but I don't know exactly what they meant. Anyone had this problem, or know the solution?

Not sure what that is at all. Could be like this. I would work like 12"X 12" bent 90o 6" up sheet metal, what we call step shingles work them under the shingles all the way up to the ridge Then take a 6"X8' sheet metal and form it to the logs so it hangs down over the step shingles about 2" dope under top edge nail it to the logs and caulk the top edge. Like we do a chimney the roof has to move from the wall some.
