It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature 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 this info is often key to providing a good suggestion

Look in your own software program in the "Build Roof" Dialog "Roof Styles" tab of that dialog. Where you will find basic instructions on how to pre-setup for auto-building most common roof styles in ANY Home Designer title or version. The instruction you will be looking for is for a "Shed Roof", in order to get a flat roof you simply order the "Roof Pitch" for the "Shed" roof to be "zero inches" in pitch. Another simple way to create, automatically a "flat" roof is to set the "Roof Pitch" input box to "Zero inches in pitch" or some value like "1/16" in 12" as the pitch, this will then give you a reasonable looking flat roof as a result. You might also want to change the surface material to something more appropriate for such a roof, like asphalt or some such material.
