How to create a Saltbox kiosk?

I need to create a structure that has a saltbox roof:

The rear plane is long and has a pitch of (say) 25 degrees. It is about 75% of the total roof. The front plane is 1/3rd of the length of the rear plane and so is about 25% of the total roof, but has a pitch of (say) 30 degrees.

There is a room under the rear roof plane. The rear and side walls align with the rear roof plane (minus the overhangs). The front wall is below the ridge line, but it could also be below the front plane.

There is nothing under the front roof plane except a floor which aligns with the roof plane and the front wall of the rear room.

 

How?  I have tried everything I could possibly think of.   I'm going insane.

Most of the answers say the same thing. "Follow the instructions". But I have tried that many times. Everything I try produces undesirable results.  

To be clear, I've spent about a day working on just this small problem.  Previously I have tried and spent far longer. Last time I gave up.

It's helpful to see what you are doing -- what your plan looks like and a 3D view or 2 showing your results.

 

Here is what I've come up with using the Architectural 2021 trial.

Yes, that's a good representation of the concept.  How is it done?

 

There are a few details missing that are probably not worth the effort (e.g. supports for the forward roof plane) but this is not an engineering drawing, it's only intended as a visualisation. So it would be OK.

This is the best version I can come up with.  I cannot persuade the front roof plane to be any bigger. The gable peak will not budge from that forward position.

Yes, I understand.

But the invisible walls do not move the peak of the gable.

Please HELP!   I have spent DAYS trying to make this work.  I cannot make it work!

THANK YOU!!!!

Such a simple solution.  I tried following the support material, but it's totally wrong.

 

Nearly there now.  Just need to work out how to change the tile sizes, how to flip the shutter, and how to combine the door with the window.
