Add Overhang to Hip roof Module

I get a fair number of hip roof calculations and I see the diagonal beam sized quite large, but when my project has a 2' overhang I would like to have the software account for that because it would shift more load to the outer (low side) reaction and would reduce every reaction of a joist on the hip beam.  Additionally having the diagonal itself with an overhang would help with deflection and sizing of the hip beam.

This could be a check box which opens the overhang dialog to enter the overhang length on each side.
