Few different ways i'm sure. My procedure below.

 

I used a secondary roof planes with higher heel, trace roof hole from the main roof around face wall and deselect cleanup on the wall.  I used a custom wall for the upper wall w/stone on inside and outside so it covers the wall ends.  I also use a custom beam rather then stone cap on the upper custom wall because the custom wall cap stupidly stops short of the wrapping stone. (fit beams to raised roof planes then deselect cleanup on those custom beams)

Once you're happy with the look, deselect cleanup everywhere just for safety then delete the raised roof plane.

 

You appear to be a new SP user so prepare yourself or a little trial and error to get it to work perfectly.

 

That sure is a beautiful look you're going for!!

Joseph, have you tried the Parapet Wall feature in 2022?

No.  i've never had the need to do a parapet wall, perhaps it'll work in Marks situation.

Joseph, how did you get your illustrated look in your rendering examples? You must have changed the settings to get it to look softer, could you share those settings?

Thank you!

You can also set the gable to a negative overhang, so it can still reference the gable parapet and sit behind the wall.
