I have a ridgeline and facia line the same on the prints(not very detailed). The problem is the one room is cantalevered 18 inches( the start of the rafter layout) and I cant figure how to keep everything the same legnth etc. when I have to end at the same facia line in the front of the house. Any suggestions?

If I understand everything correctly, the only way you'll match the ridge height and the facia line is to change the pitch of the roof.

Is this new construction? I would increase the wall height where the cantalever is.
What we've got here is... failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it... well, he gets it.
