Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof

Roofs come in all sorts of shapes and varieties, but many buildings have simple flat roofs. So in this movie I'd like to look at some of the techniques we can use to create a simple flat roof. Now even a flat roof has some sort of sloping, it's not completely flat. In an early schematic design you can get away with just doing a flat slab without any slope and it will be representational enough, but at some point in the design you're probably going to want to start modeling the actual slope so that you get a more accurate representation of what's really going to be there. So I'm in a file called Flat Roof and I want to look specifically at the shape editing tools that are available on roof slabs that will allow us to sculpt the drainage sloping for a flat roof.

There are kind of a lot of pieces that need to fit together correctly in order for this technique to work, so let's sort of try and walk through this systematically. If I select this roof right here, okay, t...
