Hey, great forum...and sorry if this question is basic/obvious...im sort of elarning revit in an office that no one knows and I have no one to ask here.

 

About my problem. Im creating a skylight in an all concrete building, its sides are slanted, and to achieve this I created a massing to which I made its sides 4" concrete walls. I then placed this walls over the roof which has a series of angles. I then created vertical openings where the skylights break thru the building and joined the wall/roof geometry. The problem Im having is I cant find a way to alter the skylight walls to hug the contour of the roof their are cutting. What I end up with is the skylight extending below the rood line, and what I need to show is it being flush, almost as if the skylight is a bending of the roof skin. The walls wont let me edit or cut their contour, so I am out of idea...perhaps this wasnt the best idea to solve this problem in the first place.

 

Anyways I have included a couple of images, any help would be amazing, Thank you.

EDIT:

 

On image one is one of the biggest problems I have, roof slope continues behind that skylight, so its bottom edge will have to have an inverted V shape so it can hug the roof.
