i need to make a double pitched, gable ended roof. the back face fo the roof is a single 8:12 pitch, but the front face has an 8:12 pitch and a 2:12 pitch. I created two roofs - one at 8:12 and a 2:12 shed roof, that i joined to the 8:12 roof. I cant seem to remove or demolish the portion of the 8:12 roof that slips under the 2:12 shed, so its overhang(fascia)is visible beneath the shed, but what i want to see is a single fascia that follows the pitch change. is there some way to do this?

Ive also tried editing the 8:12 roof edge to align with the pitch break, but doing that moves the ridge.

thanks!

When you do it in that particular way, you have to give the edit line that borders your lower roof an elevation offset.

 

It is (usually) much easier to do this roof as an extrusion though. You probably already have it all done, so leave it like it is and work with what you have there

thanks! though im not sure how to give one edge of a roof a different elevation offset than the other. you did get me thinking about the overhang on the front - i tried giving that edge a negative overhang distance, back to where the shed meets the main roof, and its much closer than what i had. the fascias along the rake edge dont quite line up because of the different angles, but its close enough for now. will try the next one as an extrusion. 'preciate it!
