If the problem is the hole where the gable comes down and meets the shed, go into plan view and place a break near that point, then select the (corner) of the lower portion of the shed and drag it over until it perpendicular with the out side wall and that should fix it (I think). I am a long ways from being the expert, but in similar circumstances it worked for me.
