No, I would be suggesting that the entire roof structure of the carport be taken down... the poles on the outside shortened by the required distance to get a slope away from the building so you get rid of the water from the building structure, then restore the roof with the new slope with a bracketing structure against the wall to accomodate the new slope. You should not have to play with you buildings roof in any way shape or form....Yes, that's the trouble. Not keen on interfering with the roof.
Brackets/extensions where TB? Do you mean maybe putting in tall posts at the edge of house overhang and lifting it that way, i.e. so the structure is against the house gutter? What sort of slope is good 3 or 4 degrees?
Would this work?

It's against the house wall under the overhanging fascia. Thinking of doing this on poles against the fascia but higher.
At worst what you could do is bracket the carport roof to the roof trusses that overhang form the wall, but that should only be approached if you cant reseat the carport roof against the wall with the new slope away from the house.
Also in terms of the drain pipe thing, maybe look at getting a jojo tank or some water storage unit so that you don't have to have an ugly downpipe going back to the house.
