Help need advice on roof pitch for 8'X12' shed

I need help. I am building a mono lean to shed which is 8ft wide and 12 ft deep. The highest point will be no more than 7' 6' tall. I live in southern california, no snow, so the only thing I have to consider is rain.

And the question is?????? What is the lowest part's (open end) measurement? That will be really low with any pitch at all. You won't get more than a 2:12 and maintain any height at the open end. 12' is a long way to go with your pitch starting at less than 8'. Remember, every number in pitch will drop your open end by one foot. 1:12 will be 6'6", 2:12 will be 5'6", and so on.
