Creating a roof on a lower wall to join with the main roof

Not applicable
Hi there, I am working on a house where I have a lower wall (14 and 12 Feet) height and the rest has a bigger height (20 Feet). I created the main roof over the higher walls, but need to create a roof over the lowered wall to blend in with the other roof above.

If anyone can help I would appreciate it!

I'm not sure I get your problem, but if "blend in" means join = look as one piece, then I'd just stretch the upper roof as needed to cover the lower one's contour in plan. Then, if I want them to show on different floor plans, just cut it with the split tool and change the lower one's home story, making sure its level doesn't change (this requires AC11)

And place your AC version, platform and machine specs in your signature. please!

Perhaps show us a pic with the roof and show what you want to do with the lower roof drawn in.

Just like talking louder to someone who does not speak English won't help them understand you, posting the same question twice does not make your query any clearer.

What roof surfaces do you want to intersect? Maybe elaborate on your image.

Do you know that you can select a roof, then CTRL+click (or Command+click) on a second roof to extend (or trim) the second roof to where they intersect? (Then reverse the selection to repeat for first roof edge)
