I am a newbie when it comes to scratch building (except for grammar school when me made simple structures out of cardboard and used straws as the logs.

Anyway, my question is this. I am building a station, and having problems with the roof angles. At the end of you station the roof line changes from front to back to side by side.

How do you figure the angle of the roof towards the side? I know I am not using the correct terminology, but I need all the help I can.
Thanks, Al

Thanks dooper, tjcruiser and Patrick. How I figured out the Roof Angles? I guess my forum name The Amazing Swal explains this.
In the past when someone asked me how I did a magic trick I use to say I don't even know myself. Of course I really did but this time I can honestly say I don't even know myself. I did the roof a long time ago and I took a guess at the angles. I know my first guess wasn't right but my second was close enough to get the job done.
