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 am trying to create a story and a half main house that has a two story gable roof addition.  I have been able to create the story and a half with a 1 story addition but can't figure out how to add a second story to the addition.  The main part of the house has a 10/12 roof (created by build roof options: move roof up 12', ignore 2nd floor).  The goal is to have the main roof 10/12 and the 2 story addition a 6/12 gable.

      Pics below are a quick mockup. One showing the successful story and a half w addition.  The other a bit more unusual configuration that I may not be able to get past the building inspector.
      Thanks in advance for any help provided.

      Hi, we have a split level home with 2 (meaning double) 2 x 4 exterior walls with a 3.5” air gap in between them for a total (rough) wall thickness of 10.5”. The home has 3 separate roof heights, all with a 5:12 pitch. The home is in central Minnesota (the reason behind the thick walls). I’m just getting started with Home Designer Pro and not sure how to start. I’ve watched some videos, but nothing that would help duplicate our wall design. Do you have some training materials that would help, or someone who could get it started on the software? Thanks for any help you can provide.

      The red arrows point to the problem area.
      The outside wall and interior wall at the closet intersect with the valley where the two roof planes intersect.
      The interior of the room creates an attic wall (with exterior siding) above the closet (NOTE: Ceiling was removed to get image)
      The plan view shows where the roof planes intersect at the valley. I have the same problem on the other side of the house because it is symmetrical.
      The plan is too large (65MB) but here is the model (https://3d-viewer.chiefarchitect.com/go?share=543146417714334).
       
      Any suggestion on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

      Civil engineer asked for roof plan. Currently. I have been able to display roof plains by floor level with slope markers. However, being it is a two level home...how do I display a complete roof for a layout plan? Along with dimensions for roof rain displacement calculation?

      Hey all,
       
      Sorry for the slight tongue-twister of a title. I'm here with another novice question.
       
      When creating roof plans to send to layout, I'm running into an issue. After I choose to display all of my roof planes on the same level, they appear as though the program is deliberately displaying the lower roof planes on top of those that should be above. I've attached a couple snips showing an example of how one of my roof plans is drafted and another two with what that plan looks like in plan view. It's in the roof plan view but it looks the same regardless of the layer set I use.
