Sorry if I am repeating other posts, feel free to hand out as much direction as possible.

I need to return the fascia on rake end of the gable with a hip going from lower left to upper right if that makes sense.   In the example I built two roofs the gable with 0 overhang on the low ends the I added the return shape, then joined the geometry.  Seems there should be an easier way.

Plus the return on the rake end doesn't extend all the way to the wall. 

 Thanks!

looks like you got it. just modify the return by changing it's shape to fit to the wall.

Here is what I was shooting for.  The original post showed the return as a gable on the left edge, it was like that because Revit kept telling me it couldn't complete the roof with the "defines slope" selected on the leg perpendicular to the wall.  So...I created it as its own roof form, then joined geometry to the main roof.  Seems to work out.

Actually three separate roof forms, may be other ways feel free to tell me.

Thanks!
