Looking for assistance and direction on how to draw a porch ceiling with a barrel shape ( radius or Ellipse) and a the gable to match the ceiling profile.

Help or direction is appreciated.

Thank you

Edge edit the ceiling and use the PROFILE option.

 

For the end gable make it a full wall, and add an arched opening the full width of the wall, (put the wall on a layer that doesn't print), and then add corner posts to suit.

Keith I am fairly need at this but each time I try it I get a peak or ridge at the top and not a free flowing arch. I’m not understanding the full wall either is there a way you could walk this through a little better. I have a little hall 7 ft deep and 5 ft wide and my walls are 12 ft tall.  Wanted to put the arch at about 10 ft start on the sides and arch up in a nice curve to about 6 in in the center. So is this where the arch opening comes in ?
