Roof Question

Hi Bill.  Hope everything is going okay for you.  After 7 years I am finally trying to learn some of the 3d functions.  Please see attached image.  I would like for the main roof to continue down till it hits the garage roof but cannot figure out how to make this happen. I am also attaching the drawing in case you need it.  Thanks!

Roof

Hey Dennis, the problem is that you have the roof attached to a wall that is taller than the roof that you want to join up to. Your garage walls are 9' but the wall you are attaching the roof to is 11'. Since your roof pitch is 6:12 and you want to drop the wall height by 2' that means that you will have to move the wall forward 4'. And since you don't want this wall to show up in your prints you need to also edit it and set it to hidden. See the attached file for an example.
