    but I can't figure out how to cover the columns with two different materials.

     

    Did you play with blocks as a child? Even if you did not, think how this might be put together from various shapes.

     

    A big block for the base, a flat one for the cap, and a tall skinny one for the wood part.

     

    You have various shapes (Shapes in the Library, Soffits, even a base cabinet might work).

     

    Just need to learn the tools and objects that are available, and think how they may be used.

     

    I would also check the Library and the Bonus Catalogs available on the HD website for something pre made.

    *** I see you said Suite ***

     

     

    Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

     

    You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

     

    Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

     

    And, turn on signature display too.

  4. Because HD lacks the ability to define layers in the roof structure, you will need to experiment with the tools it does have.

     

    You could use 2 roof planes, one on top of the other, for example. 

     

    Knowing what it should look like -- not so much how it will be built will help with the best suggestions. How will it be trimmed, for example.

  7. You have 2 roof planes where you only need one. 

     

    With manual roofs, it's up to you to fix funky details.
