Hiding a part feature in an assembly drawing

I'm wondering is it possible to hide a feature of a part within an SW Assembly Drawing Document (.DRW). The structure of the assembly is as follows: Top Level Assembly > Sub Assemblies.

 

Within the drw assembly drawing I want to hide a roof panel which is modelled as a feature of a part, the part being in a subassembly. The roof is not an individual part itself so I cannot simply hide it.

 

I have created a configuration of the part where it has the roof panel hidden. However, from the assembly drawing (drw) it is not possible to select the configuration of this individual part. Do I need to add in a configuration of the assembly itself? One that shows the roof panel, the other that shows it hidden? Is there an easier way of hiding/suppressing this feature?
