Shed roof rafters

Good afternoon everyone,

I am attempting to place a shed roof which will serve as a porch roof.  I am placing it on a series of posts which will support a beam.  My problem is that when I add the shed roof it touches the top of the beam and when I add the rafters they ride right under the roof layer.  I cannot figure out how to raise the rafters so that I can have a birds-mouth. Any advise would be appreciated.

Thanks Tom

Edit the roof edge for the shed roof and set the Seat Cut to 3.5".
