Odd roof style - not really a cathedral but almost

Recommended Posts

I am attempting to do an "as-is" drawing of an odd shaped building I'm re-designing for a client.  It is one floor but one side of the building has 2 wall heights of 10' and on the other two it's 16' high with the ceiling vaulting up from the lower to the higher.

 

I have looked at the Salt Box option but I don't have a 2nd floor and from what I can tell, the only way to change the wall height is to change the ceiling height, but since I don't have a ceiling, that doesn't work either.

 

I'm new to the CA Interiors program and I think I maybe attempting a more advanced roof type so any help or suggestion is appreciated.

 

I've attached a picture that shows the 2 heights coming together  post-13359-0-29133300-1473977555_thumb.jpg

 

Thank you,

Tami,

 

Even though you don't have a ceiling in the room, the wall height is still controlled by the ceiling height.

Raise the ceiling height and the walls and roof will raise (auto or rebuild roofs).

Thank you Glenn - I tried that, but since one side of the room is shorter wall height it doesn't end up looking right.

Can do that with a normal cathedral, just looks odd because the one wall is 45.

Wow, Glenn has probably given you some good advice, this guy has never been wrong except when he suggested I order the halibut instead of the sea bass.

Post your plan if you want an answer you can use......... I can't believe he recommended the halibut in lieu of sea bass.

Thank you.... I must not have done it correctly then (I'm very new and this is probably not the best first project, but I'm determined).  I'll see if I can figure out how to post it - thank you again!

 

I would probably go with the halibut too, so there you go :)

Here is how to attach things. Make sure the plan is not open in Chief.

And here is a simple plan.

      I'm using X11 premier on a mac -- I have an exterior garage wall (with a centered garage door) and a gable end -- I'd like to split the attic wall of the gable end into 3 parts -- the central region above the garage door, and the left and right, to have a different material above the garage door.

      I have Default Settings > Roof > Auto Rebuild Roof set to Off
      I have Default Settings > Framing > Automatically Build Floor and Ceiling Framing Off on all framing types.
      I have Default Settings > Walls > General Walls > Auto Rebuild Attic Walls set to Off

      If I delete the roof and ceiling planes with Build > Roof > Delete [X] and then use the Build > Roof > Build Roof ... dialog to rebuild the roof and attic from scratch -- I leave the Auto Rebuild Roofs set to Off, to be clear -- and then edit the resulting gable roof on the attic layer, I can split it twice to produce the three separate wall sections, but once I change the exterior material on any of the sections, the three wall segments get replaced with a single wall again.  The new wall has my selected material, but that does me no good as I need the distinct secgments.

      Anyone know what setting do I need to turn off to maintain the manually edited gable end?  Or is this a mac bug?

      Or, barring that, does anyone know what approach will let me give the desired finish detail (attached a pic of a freehand elevation)?

      I have all these little 'X's can someone please tell me how to get rid of them?  I've been really playing around with the roof and i THINK they are from that but at the same time i have a couple random ones outside where the roof is -- i cannot get them to go away. Help!
       
      thanks in advance

      Hello, We are having a hard time getting  the design program to do the roof right. We have tried with Sketchup and it got the closest. It's hard to describe I have attached a few pics with a decent idea of what we are trying to do.
       
      The Garage is a shed roof as well as the breeze way, but they are at different angles. The house is a butterfly style with the V running at a angle. WE do not care what the pitch ends up being on any of the roofs.
       
      Anyone know how to do this. I have been trying for hours and the program goes crazy every time. Esp with the all 3 roofs at different angles with each other. I have attached a copy of the plan we made and some pics from sketchup because that program got the closest to what we are trying to do.
       
      Thanks

      I wonder why my second floor loft flooring is sticking through the roof and can be seen on the outside of the building?

      Hi all. I'm fairly new to the software and have only been using it since October. I have a client who wants a wood framed chimney extruding from the middle of the roof up from the gas fireplace. I've tried a bunch of different options to make this work but can't figure it out. Can someone please tell me how to draw walls on top of the roof?
       
      Thank you!
