    If the eave heights are all the same it should be possible in one roof, its not totally clear to me what you are trying to do. But if you want the highlighted blue roof to continue to the face of the second roof, edit its sketch to do so but Don't make it slope defining. Leave only the main roof sketch line slope defining and it will continue to slope down to the next sketch line. So basically , edit sketch of the highlighted roof and trace the edge of the front roof, then make sure none of the new lines are slope defining. then use join geometry to clean it up.

    Hi Midaz,
    It is still very unclear what you want the finished product to look like. The "street view" photo is at the wrong angle and does not show the desired condition in a manner that can be understood. That said, with little idea with how this condition should be modeled, you can try this as shown in the image attached below. Again, it's a total shot in the dark since i can't determine what you want.

    Let the roof boundary continue out to where the red dashed lines are, then use a vertical opening (orange) to cut the roof back to the finished location. It will eliminate unwanted valleys and ridges.

    If that doesn't help, pls send another precedent photo that better explains the condition.

    Like this picture, the roof in front doesnt finish traight, there is a slope on the left of the garage roof.

    Part 2: how do I level jsut the back part of the roof, to make the water leave by the rear, I can't have a slope that is is going down to the facade

    Is it more clear? ahah

    Yep that can be all done
    see the attached file
    Its made from a 3 Roof's & shouldn't be too hard for you to replicate
    Sometimes trying to use a Single roof can be a bit troublesome

    Edit each of the Roof's to see how i have done it & note where the Slopes have been defined from
