I need to draw a roof section in 3d. The roof starts as an arc and ends as a line. I have no idea how to extrude this shape. Any ideas?

my 3D knowledge is very limited but can't you just join the line and arc (Pedit) and then extrude them as one entity?

The first section of the roof is an arc. It tapers in and flattens out to end up as a line. Ive made the walls and floor. The top is open. I would have prefered to do it as a solid but did each face independently.
