Can you post images of what you are trying to model? Specifically how the shed roof interacts with the main roof on the end.

Go to Help, View Online Help Videos.  I would start with the basic roof video and work up.  A lot depends on which HD product you have.

Since you have Pro, you may draw the roof manually, easily getting just what you want.

 

Look through the YouTube videos for some how to info.

I do not see why you could not draw a Porch creating a Room Specification Dialog, set up the outer wall and side walls as per the "Roof Styles Tab" of the "Build Roof Dialog", make sure the porch room dialog has "Ceiling and Roof over this Room" checked and then auto-generate a shed roof over that defined porch or as Eric suggested just manually draw a shed roof. Either way you really need a porch area defined over which to create a shed roof.
