Hi I have been learning revit for 2 months now and have come up with a design concept, now I am having trouble with

creating the roof for my design. I will upload a photo of a rough model I made of it.

But basically the roof starts at ground levein some areas.

cheers, would be great help if someone could give me a hand

You should be able to create that roof using the normal roof process.  Never too early to start learning...

 

You may have to use voids afterwards to get the final shape.

Just by footprint with some added void cuts. 

 

To be able to describe the slope of the roof facets by using a footprint line, that line will not be the edge of your roof.  No problem.  Draw it where it will create the correct roof plane then use a vertical void form to cut your roof at the proper eave location.

The only problem with using the footprint line is that if i were to draw a triangle in plan and click the tick it will create a

roof within that space. Also when u say use vertical void do you mean using the cut geometry tool?

This is by no means your roof but maybe it will help you understand.

He means making a model-in-place family in the roof category, which is a void extrusion, which you then use cut geometry with, yes.

 

what you'd do is create a squished triangle in plan, (the outline you see when looking at your model from top down,) give it a slope, and keep upping the slope until it matches what you've got on your mock-up.
