    You can also extrude the triangle with a draft to get the same result. Just extend the extrude distance beyond the converging point.

    The method you use should depend on what your design intent is - or in other words - which is more important, the height or the angle?

    If I wanted to use a pyramid as a roof of a rectangular prism of a house, how would I do so?

    see @NeilCooke and @viru 's posts above

    Viru's animation is what you're doing, but just draw a square instead of a triangle, or any shape for that matter
