    Recessed Roof Extending Into Walls

    Hi Everyone, long time viewer but first time poster here! I've found this forum so useful so thought I'd ask about this issue I've run into and can't google my way out of.

    I am trying to model roof that is 'recessed' into the walls, or rather the cladding runs above the roof for a more contemporary parapet look with concealed gutters.

    So far I have created the roof by picking the walls; extended the roof into the wall, then cut the geometry of the wall with the roof. This has worked for the end wall in the picture. However, when I tried it on the taller wall, there is a bit left sticking out any idea how I can get rid of this?

    Many thanks in advance!

      As your Roof Only cuts to the Core of the Wall, you may have to use a Reference Plane to attached teh Top of the Wall to. Do the Following:
      1 - Go to a Section or Elevation View that shows the Side / Cut of the Roof & Wall
      2 - Draw a Reference Plane Parallel to the Top of the Roof
      3 - Select the Wall & Attached it's Top to the Reference Plane
      4 - Using the Join Geometry Tool, Join the Resultant Roof & Wall together
