Gable roof issues.

My client wants the gable (area A) on the front of this house to be open with a heavy beam sunburst.  However, when I open the room dialogue and turn on "use soffit as ceiling", the walls in area B disappear.  I figure it has something to do with the two porch walls facing the center of the house but I can't figure out how to fix it.  Any suggestions?

Is that how you want the roof? I avoid 2 gables coming together like that and would make the wall marked in green a Hip wall.

 

No idea why the walls disappear.

If I make those hips, the whole gable over the main structure disappears.  I think it needs the area b for aesthetics.  I may try to make the front gable narrower to avoid that corner.  It may be fixed by raising the roof baseline.  I will try that.  Materials are also acting weird in this project.  I had my walls set for the lighter brick that shows in the gable but somehow it keeps showing the red brick on the lower walls and I'm having trouble changing materials.
