I am doing a remodel & addition to an elementary school that has a unique saw blade look to it. (It happens to be building that my grandpa designed back in the early 60’s) I am trying to get the main roof slope shown correct, the roof needs to slope approximately 1/8” per foot from the outer roof edge down to the inner roof edge of the courtyard. I need to maintain a consistent outer roof edge height and a consistent inner roof edge height. I’ve tried everything I can think of so anyone who has any ideas, please help.  Attached is the Revit file so you can play around with it. Thanks in advanced.

In the tutorial it said to do the roof by mass, but that you should chose a roof.  I tried and nothing happened.  My problem started when I ended up with two, one roof right on top of the other. So I deleted it and now I can't seem to get a roof at all.  I am a student at ITT using Revit and the roof has been an issue.  I need to be able to show a roof and I can't even seem to build one good one.

It is a basic hip roof with gabled ends.  The center roof is higher than the garage and the bedrooms on the right and left sides.  The front porch has two levels of roofing on the center roof in the front.  This house is from TheHouseDesigners.com, the particular house is the Wilson Creek House considered a traditional cottage design.  After struggling I actually deleted the roof completely.  Then I had no roof section level at all.  I tried duplicating the floor plan with no luck.   I did find something that said to add a second level where the roof should be and create views and levels for each height difference.  I am not sure this will give me what I need.  I also went back and cleaned up my files by deleting extra stuff without realizing what I might be loosing or gaining.  I seem to be at a point where it might be easier to start from scratch again.

If it is indeed like the one attached, I would build it as a in-place mass - extrusion or sweep, which ever you are more confortable with.  It looks like, to me, you good do the 'L' portion as one sweep then extrude the entry.  I kinda suck at the roof tool, so i usually just mass it, then make it a roof by face.
