Overframed roofs

Is there an easy way to prevent overframed roofs from cutting into existing roof planes?  I have this condition often when doing an addition and I would think there was an easy way to do this.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

Generally I just pull the base of the main roof plane back to the bearing wall line from the intersection with the overframe.

Then bring the overframe onto the main body.

This allows the main body to stay continuous while the overframe lays on top.

Brian ,I just tried to use the truss base and it doesn't work anymore, with conv. framing. Don't know when this got changed. I pretty much manually build my roofs like Rob described above, so didn't notice. Sorry about that and thought you wanted this to work with auto roofs
