Hip Roof Overhang

I am adding a room to the back of a house using a hip roof design. We want a 1' overhang on the sides of the addition and a 2' overhang on the back side. The hip rafters, do not, therefore, line up with the back corners of the walls. Any advice on how to tie the roof in with the wall framing?

Dont know why. wont look right. But just do it like the side rafters and cut the tails off at the 1 ' mark after they are up. This will make that fascia board higher than the sides.You also have to cut this off the hip ridge board.
