    How do you create a roof for diffrent Wall heights

    Im making a house that has the front walls higher than the sides. When i make the roof I can only set the constraint to one wall height only. So its either floating above some walls or going through some walls. How can I solve this probelm?

      Try creating separate, individual roof planes instead of a single roof by footprint.
      Then join geometry on the individual planes.

        Create the roof at whatever elevation you want, then select all the exterior walls and attach them to the roof. It will clean up automatically.

            you can also click on a sketch line of a roof, and change it's Plate Height parameter to make a section of a roof higher even when its created from the same sketch.

              Where can i find the Plate Height parameter?
              Also do you have any suggestions on cleaning up tile ridges? Mine are extruding through each other. Is there a way to connect them?

              I uploaded pics of the house.


              Off-topic- Would any one be willing to spend 30-60 minutes everyone once in awhile to screen share computers, so you could show me some tips and improvements for designing houses. I'm a senior in High school about to graduate and i really want to have a firm grasp of Revit before i attend college.

                Select the sketch line of the Roof, and change the "Offset From Roof Base" parameter in the properties dialog.

                  I changed the sketch line height but now its giving me a error. I frequently get this error when creating roofs.
