Hi Rob,

This peaked my curiosity, I appreciate eastern timber architecture and joinery!   

I looked online to find more examples and it looked like the ridge beam was the sloping piece. 

I made a mock up of it.

I remembered a post from Glenn Woodward about using a Terrain Perimeter for these types of Roofs, so gave it a go,  it is doable but a bit of work, but some centerlines and the use of multicopy for the terrain elevation lines etc help.

 

 Ceiling planes will be needed though as Terrain has no bottom surface in 3D.

 

Terrain Grass is now Asphalt 3 material and terrain skirt is set to color black in example.
