I see you said Pro, but answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on, then see mine for an example) 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.

What is "right"? If it's an existing house -- post images, if not, someone needs an idea of what you want via a drawing or other.

Here is a plan using auto built roofs that should get you going. I'd add the porch roof manually after the other parts of the roof are correct using the auto builder.

 

Using your plan,

 

Go to Edit>Reset To Defaults, choose all floors and check all the options.

 

Go To Edit>Delete Objects, choose Roof Planes and Roof Baseline Polylines.

 

Delete the 2nd floor and the Attic level. (Build>Floor>Delete Current Floor)

 

Turn on auto rebuild roofs, then change the settings to make the roof work. Don't check Make Roof Baseline Polyline as it's not needed.
