Can't figure out how to configure roof

Recommended Posts

I'm new to home designing and to this software and I'm starting to get a hang on some things but I'm having a really hard time getting this roof to work. It's a pretty simple roof but it keeps giving me odd lines because of the porch I think. The two roof planes on the parallel walls on the porch are the source of my problem I believe but don't know how to fix it. I don't need the small gable at the back of the house as I'm modifying the plan a bit. I attached the roof plan of how I want it to look and the plan I've made in home designer. Can somebody help me out? 

 

I'm using home designer suite 2019

Break the wall and change to Hip.

Where do I break the wall and change to hip? the two sides of the porch are already hips?

 

There's the two roof planes that extend out from the porch and make these extra ridges instead of the one big gable roof with a gable over the front window and two garage doors. I'd like to be able to figure this out so I can make more complex roofs down the line.

Ditto what Eric said, but a little more detailed.

Yes! Thank you both! I finally have it figured out now. I'm definitely new at this and am learning more and more everyday. Thank you so much!
