    Do you have any photo's you can show of the finished model? I like the truss idea, I may try that.

    If I had to make a choice, I'd prefer to have the model framed correctly vs having an accurate material take-off.

    That's exactly the problem. How would you draw the valley plate? The jack rafters have a horizontal as well as a bevel cut to match the plane of the main roof. Can Chief do this?

    David, I should have been more descriptive with my question. The California or Blind Valley is what you have pictured in your post. Instead of a valley rafter this method uses a valley plate to which all the jacks are attached to. Here is a photo and a Youtube link which shows it in Sketchup.

    Hi, just joined, new user. I'm trying to model two intersecting gable roofs, where one will lay over the's called a blind or California valley. I did a search here and online but cant find anything on this topic. Thanks beforehand for any help.
