Parts of the Roof will not join to wall / wall selection

I am drawing up my house in Revit to get use to the software. I created my house, and now my garage.  I selected to create a roof by footprint but when I tried to join the roof to the adjacent wall, the overhang does not follow.  I then selected the overhang to join to the adjacent wall but an error pops up: "Part of the roof to be joined misses the target face."

 

 

 

I attached a PDF of the roof.

 

Also, you will notice a line that separates the two walls I joined together.  I may separate them but how do I avoid this if I want to make one solid wall??

 

As for the wall selection, I have vinyl siding and would like to use properties that relate when selecting my exterior walls.  I do not see anything regarding that besides wood siding.  I thought that should be in my properties when I downloaded and purchased the software.

 

A jpg is attaced regarding the wall selection.

 

Thanks in advance!!

See the attached image about your roof and you will have to edit the wall type to create the wall you want. See this link for more details:
