  6. DRAWZILLA's post in Corner foyer modeling problems was marked as the answer   
    Here it is fixed, had to play around with it, I guess the main thing I did was to add a 2nd floor (open below). just use invisible walls not a glass wall. Check it out and see if that works for you. I noticed the roofs reverted back to hips but you can fix that easily

    Add a second floor to the structure then you can make the ceiling system out of the 2nd floor and adjust the height of the floor/ ceiling to wherever you want. If you want no walls to show on the 2nd floor then just make them invisible. Also use open below for no floor and to adjust wall height
