Need a good reference for tying in a Porch roof (gable) onto existing Hip roof


I am looking for a good reference that shows the necessary construction for tying in a gable roof (for a porch) about halfway up on an existing hip roof. I am going to cover a porch on a one story house, and need to figure out how to tie in the new roof to my existing roof. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Check out framing books at your local bookstore/library or do a search on a search engine.

I have done both of those, but have not been able to see any details on the attachment point of the two roofs.

Sometimes you need to understand that your exact situation will not be illustrated. It's the understanding of the roof framing of each type that allows you to adapt to your particular situation.
Try posting some photos.
