The roofing tool is extremely versatile when using multiple sections and not just one or two large sections. Why is the roof stretched all the way through the rooms? Why does it not stop as shown in the red box here:

Have you tried the half hipped or half gabled roof instead?

@Bluebellflora I used three sections of roof, two eight-edged ones on both ends and a half gable in the middle. I’ll take new screenshots to show a better angle.

@Bluebellflora I took a few new screenshots.

 

Like I said in my previous reply, I used three sections of roof. Two eight-edged on both ends and a half gable in the middle. I tried using the diagonal half hipped roof on the edges, but it didn't look good and gave me the same problem, it clipps through the walls.

Thanks. Can you upload it so I can play around with it? There have been issues with hexagonal and octagonal roofs and I wonder if this could be one of those issues.

I downloaded your lot and tested it.  It seems that the issue is with using full roofs in that situation.  I  tried various things and none of the full roofs would work.  I tried with a full hip roof and it did the same thing as the octagonal one.  The only roofs that seemed to work without causing an issue are the half roofs so I suggest you try a half hip roof for the lower area.  It doesn't look as good but it will work.

 

Hope this helps.

Been working with this a little more and found a way that it can work.

 

What happened is when you tried to get rid of the 2 tiles inside the fence at the stairs, you created a new room.  And it is that room is what is causing the problem.

 

The way I got it to work was move the stairs outside.  Delete all the fences around the stair opening.  Then select the big room upstairs and move the invisible wall back to exterior wall which will close up the hole where the stairs were.  Then put the stairs back in the original location.  And redraw the fencing like I show in the pic.

@CGrant56 Thank you.

 

Do you know what to do with this part of the roof? (see added screenshot)

I've tried using the custom room-tool to re-trace the walls of the room, but it still doesn't disappear.
