Extending a portion of the roof overhang

How can I extend just a portion of the roof overhang to cover a narrow porch? I want to maintain the same plane and pitch.


Thanks, Tom Sams

Roof overhang

I would say to draw a separate roof on the porch with a vertical intersect at the house. I imagine that you have a beam or wall at the porch otherwise you'll need to incorporate a hidden beam to reference to. You then need to adjust the height (offset) of the beam to blend with the main roof.

Thanks, I did try that, but it seems to be a bear to align and a line is visible in the elevations and 3D. Not sure how to eliminate the line or how to make it align correctly.


Thanks Tom

Roof Overhang

Tom depending on the roof could you just edit the whole overhang on that side of the roof to be wide enough to

cover the porch then cut a hole in the roof on either side of the porch to make those area overhangs correct ?

You would have to adjust heel height to suit on the main wall.
