Anybody have a good solution to fix this problem.  I have a gable that is shared by 2 different roof heights.  so I need sheetrock on the inside because of the vaulted ceiling and siding above the roof (on the rake)  I tried split wall, but does nothing.  I attached a pic.  Thanks for your comments.

Scott, you will probably need to post the plan to get quicker help, althought there are geniuses on this forum that may be able to spit the answer out quickly!

Use the "lower wall if split by butting roof" tool in the wall DBX ,and if that doesn't work , just make that wall a pony wall and shape as you need it.,

Thanks Perry.  I have always struggled with this. It took some time but figured it out.  The Pony wall didn't work.  I had to cut my gable wall off at the peak, instead of going all the way across.  then the split wall was able to work.

Yep, sometimes you have to break walls to get the desired outcome ,even footings too b/c after all they are walls too.

      All,
       
      I am working on a house that the customer wants a vaulted gable roof over the great room. I would like to get this gable roof to span the entire great room if I could, but can't seem to get the roof lines to work. I also don't want a very tall gable wall at the great room. See the below images to what I am talking about. I also attached the plan file for reference.
       

       

       
      Any suggestions or help will be appreciated.
       
      Thank you in advance,

      Hello,
      I have been learning a lot about building porches, both manually and using Railings.
      I used a Room Divider to make the concrete pad. Then a molding profile to add 4" around it. 
      I made a 1x1 sq profile and made my beam, and added in my columns.
      I built several porches trying different roofs, but end up with no gable end wall. 
      I tried added an exterior wall and making it an attic wall, which added some frieze boards, but the wall just covered my porch from concrete up.
      Not finding much on videos for porches.
      Thank you

      How do I get the siding to show up on in the gable? See attached pictures.. Also, what is the best way to align the eyebrows along the front?
       
      Thanks in advanced..

      I have a persistent problem with gaps in my porch ceilings in between the finished surface and the underside of the roof structure.  I know it has to be a setting i have wrong but i cannot figure it out! Current project is a barndominium with a gable porch. 
      Thanks in advance
