length between fascia and drip line problem

I would want to install gutters on a garden shed so that I can collect the run-off in a rain barrel. I have an issue where the drip line is approximately 6" from the fascia. I checked with local Home Depot and the only length of hidden hanger is 5". I searched online, but found some roof hanger types up to 7". I have no experience, but these seem to short as well. They only came in bulk orders, but thats a different issue.

Any suggestions for when the drip line is extended so far?

Well I would think 1 of 2 things would be the fix. 1 shorten the roof edge to where it is closer to the fascia or 2 add on to the fascia to extend it closer to the roof edge.
So 1 would cut the roofing material and 2 would be placing blocking behind the gutter to bring it closer to the drip line.
Standard gutter are 5 inch and you want the roof line to only go over the gutter by an inch at the most. Seems like cutting the roofing material would be the cheapest solution.
