I am having trouble recreating a roof that exists on a building that I am redesigning some  renovations .  I've attached the actual photo of the roof over hang ( if it is an actual overhang) plus my perspective overview in progress....

Any help is appreciated by

In this case, the overhang is just a mini mansard roof built on the edge of the flat roof as an Architectural decoration, so it does not "look" merely flat. The roof border is probably around 20/12 pitch and in plan view is probably just a foot or two deep. It is similar to creating a manual roof return when the auto roof return setting fails to work and you have to then step into and draw a manual return, only in this case, you are creating four full returns of 20/12 around the flat roof of the entire building.
