Default a roof and window

This is probably one of the dumbest questions but, how would one experienced in Maya go about creating a pitched roof. I'm working on this castle (attached) and I'm not sure if it would be easier to extrude the top of the building and then somehow make it angle or should I use a pyramid?
also for windows with an arc. I've made separate windows and used boolean>difference to make window cut outs but after reading so much on how unreliable they are I'm trying to split the polygon and then be able to extrude to make a window. but I don't know how to make a nice arc. any help? thanks.
