Draw (enclose) your porch with walls, so you can get a "Room Specification Dialog". Then open the room dialog, go to the structure tab and un-check "Ceiling over this room" which will then make the bottom side of your roof planes, the "ceiling".

You mentioned "perfected" well that takes a little more than dialog box settings but that will get you started, perfection is something you do by controlling the software and its tools through study followed by practice developing your own competence.

in your situation use invisible walls or railings to get the enclosed room , perhaps do room label as Porch to get the conc. slab and then uncheck the ceiling box as David said ,you may want the soffit box checked to , you can try it otherwise you may need to reassign materials to match your exterior rather than interior ceilings.

 

  from the help manual

 

Specify the characteristics of the room’s Ceiling.

• If Roof Over This Room is checked, a roof automatically generates over the room. If unchecked, no roof generates.

If this option is unchecked and a roof plane is manually drawn over this room, its structure will be that of an eave rather than a regular roof. See Roof Tab.

• If Ceiling Over This Room is checked, the room has a flat ceiling. If unchecked, the ceiling follows the underside of the roof or manually drawn ceiling planes.

• Check Use Soffit Surface for Ceiling to frame the roof over the selected room using the framing defaults for fascia rather than for rafters.

• Click the Ceiling Structure button to open the Ceiling Structure Definition dialog and define the layers of materials that form the ceiling platform. Not avail­able for rooms on Floor 0. See Floor/Ceiling Structure Definition Dialog.

• Click the Ceiling Finish button to open the Ceiling Finish dialog an ddefine the layers of materials that form the finished ceiling surface. See Floor/Ceiling Struc­ture Definition Dialog.

• Check the Default box to the right of either button to restore the default struc­ture and/or finish.
