  1. Glen, Thanks for your help. Can you give me a little more guidance and I will give you my first born! lol Gambrel.zip
  2. I'm having trouble learning how to draw a Grambrel roof the way I want it in Chief Architect and so Im looking for someone I can pay to tutor me to get what I want. I would like someone that is familiar with the Gambrel roof's that can also offer framing suggestions. I have never framed one before so a little lost in where to start. Any help would be appreciated. This is the exact look I'm going for: This is the house I want to convert to a second floor (or loft), Gambrel roof
  3. So in other words; If you shape the house so that you can get the main part of the roof the way you want it you can do the automatic roof build and then change your walls around and add the other roofs manually. At least that's the way that works best for me. There are other ways to get auto roofs to work for you but its more work I think unless you do it a lot and you get really efficient at it. Like others on this forum that are way more experienced than I am. Depends on what your needs are
  4. I always start with this on automatic An then put the walls with the lower pitch and add the lower pitch roof manually. File is attached: you should be able to finish up. Untitled 1.zip
  5. Thank you Perry! That's exactly what I did and the pony walls corrected the problem I was having with the two side walls above and below the roof line. Not sure why I'm having a problem with the wall that the entry door is on though?
  6. So I tried the open below and that did not work well, so I made the two side walls "Pony" walls and everything came together except for the wall that the double doors are on along with the window above it. I want about 8" in between the top of the door and the window. Here are some pics with my problem areas and the plan file. House 3.zip
  7. So it helped in some areas but it has cause several other problems on the inside and outside. It seems like it just shouldn't be this complicated.
  8. That didn't work. Not sure what do do next. Just making things worse Here is the plan file if anyone would like to take a crack at it. I don't do two stories to often.House 1.zip
  9. I thought that this should be automatic once above the roof line to be the exterior finish? Should I do this as a pony wall so I can split it or is there another way? Thank you for any help you can give me.
  10. Not sure if your still working on this but they do have a library for what yo are looking for
  11. I used the material region to put it on the wall and tried to rotate it 90d but that didn't work. Not sure if that is what you meant. What do you mean make a copy of the material?
  12. How do I change the direction of plank flooring if I'm putting it on a wall? Right now it is vertical and I want it to be horizontal. Any help would be appreciated
