I have a new skirt roof question,

You guys were very helpful regarding thanks very much!


This one is a bit more complicated and I just cant seem to wrap my head around a simple solution.  I want the garage roof to join with the porch roof, but the elevation difference complicates things immensely.  Until now I have been joining the two manually in my 2D elevations, but I want to be able to present in 3D correctly.


See attached images for current model and a photo of the desired result.


I would like to simply draw an 18" deep skirt roof (similar to the extension currently off the garage roof) and rotate the entire thing to match the pitch of the porch roof, but I don't see any way to do this.


Your help is always appreciated,

Thanks in advance!

Adjust the porch roof down till hits the eyebrow portion then cut hole in roof leaving the little eyebrow portion on the angle.

Hmmmm, This would eliminate the gutter and fascia board though, would it not?
