I think you need two roof planes.  I have done it for pergolas but you may run into issues on a real roof.

I tried to run a roof from the top down and putting a negative pitch but it recognized the lower portion as the eaves

Yep... I tried too.  It doesn't seem to want to put rafter ends on the high side no matter what.

I may have to manually put the rafters in and turn off the rafters layer

 

Unless someone else has easier way another way.

Sorry I think i was thinking of beams, and maybe if did the roof with a 0 pitch even though I wanted some slope.

 

Symbols may be the way to go.

Have to go out for a few hours so I will try symbols when I get back. Haven't worked with symbols in a while so I have to check the help.

A psolid may be just what you need drawn in elevation view but converting to a symbol sort of locks it if things are final.
