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.

      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.

      A lot of my work involves trussed roofs.  After building the trusses, I frame the roof for the facia and varge rafters.  Problem with this is that CA adds ridge boards that don't exist in trussed roofs.  There doesn't seem to be a way to frame without ridge boards or to set the ridge board dimensions at 0.  If there is a work around, I'd love to hear it.
       
      Also....  Is there a way to frame a roof where one roof California or over frames over another roof.  In my previous CAD, I could trim the bottom of one roof to the top of another and the framing acted accordingly.  This program even added a valley plate on top of the lower roof and below the rafters of the upper roof.  That may be too much to ask for, but one can only  hope.
       
      Love to hear what y'all have to say.
       
      Thanks in advance.

      hello,
      I had no idea there was a forum.  this is great!  I have one question for any knowledgeable experts out there!  
      is there a way to use auto roof planes & lock all the top heights of the roof ridges so that they all match?  I've been working on my house plan for a few months now & have created manual roof planes to do what I am kind of after, but it is a real pia when a wall needs bumped out or something is revised.  all the rooms are set to the same height, yet it generates roof planes all over the place [height wise].. I've had better results with baseline polyline manipulation, but still left with the same issue.  I want to check a box that says "lock all full gable ridge heights" & let the pitch be the variable.  basically I want full gable ridges 1,2&3 to all be the same height and span the main 3 structures of the house. but when I generate auto roofs, its a mess!  
      I also need gable 3 to slope over the porch at a lower pitch and join with gable 1- auto roof bones a hip over porch, if I change the roof group of the octagon nook it gets even wilder!

      thanks in advance!
