Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Can anyone tell me why this gable is no longer in the center of this room after I added the porch to the left?? See screenchot.

 

Thank you!

Because you are using 2 different roof pitches?  It's just a guess.

I believe you did not lock the pitch of the roof you added the porch to, and

the porch side rebuilt to match the porch pitch.

 

You can lock pitch in the roof plane DBX, or dialogue box

I think that when you built the porch with a lower pitch than

the roof it connects, if that's the case,  the program changed the side of the

house roof to match the porch roof.  Not sure why.

      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
