Patio roof above garage

I want to add a shed-roof-covered patio above my garage. The "walls" will just be 6x6 posts that hold up LVL joists for the roof, essentially making it an open-air patio with a cover.

 

I couldn't figure out how to represent that, so on this image you see solid exterior walls on the second floor. I want these walls to just be 6x6 posts on 6' centers (see the hand drawing.

 

Any tips on how to draw this?

I've gotten much closer, but I'm having trouble extending the railing posts up to the sloped ceiling. I've tried putting railings on the attic level, but that doesn't seem to do it. The second floor is specified to have the roof over it. Not sure where to go next, can't find something similar in the knowledge base.

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) 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.

Open the room and check the box "use soffit surface for ceiling".
Open the railing and uncheck "post to ceiling".   Add your own posts using either a soffit, or a box shape from the library.  Place them, then resize them.


And like solver has asked, please add your signature.
