Bent wall (dofen akuma) by a Sukkah

 

This overhang from the wall of the house is on a higher level than the Sukkah.

I am aware of dofen akuma in this case and the over hang isn’t more than 4 Amos over Sukkah. But does that require us to completely cover the entire area directly under the over hang (I.e. posul scach) or we can leave it as is?

 

 

Answer:

If you need this wall – there are no three walls without it – the area under the overhang should be covered with either kosher schach or other material.
