Hi Folks!

I have a small annoying fly in the ointment I am hoping someone might help resolve.

Often with a garage that is forward from the rest of the main house there would be the valley from the garage running up the main roof. In this the case the side hip  roof edge runs further back and continues along the gable for a small distance, I don`t see a way to show the barge board on the end to cap it off. I have tried to use the hole in roof and it is as close as I get but without the option to show the roof raking back. Any ideas?

Thank you in advance! Happy Easter!

Can you use a shed roof for the part that extends past your circle area?

Thanks David, yes I can! Now why didn`t I think of that?  Sometimes it would be nice to have an extra roof edge in between roof edges that would help to marry up two roofs and get an extra edge to edit and have all  the roof edges communicating . This did work, but I have a hole cut in the main roof to take out the gutter line from hanging in the garage, It`s nice to be able to create a roof that is all one trace line around to get  it without the chopping with holes. This one I had to do in three traces, however, I`m satisfied  for the purpose of this to get exterior 3d views. Thanks for your help. Much appreciated!
