A Little roof help please

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I have this Garage remodel project that the garage roof I can't figure it out. The garage roof is a hip that joins in with the house roof, I got all that. I need help with this small triangle that joins the front and back together.  

 

I have attached the google map images of front and back and the drawing file. I am almost at the point of just sending these problems out and paying someone for it.

Since the Chief Talk forum has changed I can't post Plan files although I can post PDF clips ok. I couldn't get the plan file to even attempt to attach.  I'll keep trying. What I did was delete the small piece of roof Rick added, then did roof break in the hip and drug that edge around to the ridge and it worked.

Yeah, I didn't look at the second PDF. Regardless, the more I look at the Google picture, the more I'm convinced that the rear intersection is the real issue, and needs to look more like this:

Obviously I don't have it perfect - but I think there is a lot of tweaking that needs to happen.

Thanks Bob and Robert,

 

This Roof stuff is tricky. Some roof look really simple when you first look at them and then you draw them in and find all the problems. What is the saying "practice makes perfect."

 

Robert you have it correct on the last one. I did start out with trying to draw it like that but then it wasn't working out and I got lost along the way. Google maps are great when you can look at roofs all around, however I feel like a spy.

 

Thank you!

ShaneK, you probably have it - I just can't see that high-to-low pitch intersection in the Google picture. A few more site photographs would help.

      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?
