I am trying to create roof framing like or similar to the attached drawing.  Not concerned about structural, the truss people will do that.  This is just to make the 3-D drawing and cross sections look correct.  I would appreciate any ideas anyone has.  I have tried everything I can think of with no luck.

Jack if you create the desired ceiling first the truss should follow the ceiling lines

That looks like a "hammer" truss detail which is used in timber framing. For it to work as plated roof truss there would have to be some separation between the bottom and top cords at the trey.

Steve and Martin, thanks for the help.  Steve, don't know why I didn't think of the ceiling.  When I upgraded one time I got a disk showing how to do all the different roof designs and one lesson was on trusses.   One covered was exactly what I needed. Creating the scissor trusses.  Thanks for jogging my memory.
