How to build roof with a prow

Recommended Posts

Im a new user of Home Designer Architectural. I have the main room which is 24' x 36'. At one end of the 36' wall, I want to include a prow that extends out 6 additional feet and comes to a point in the center of the 24' wide wall. It appears to me that the software wants to produce a gable end wall between to parallel walls . Here is a view of the room(pic 1) that I want to put the gabled roof on and the results I get looking at the front and back of the room. Is there a way to make the front gable wall (pic 2) look like the back gable(pic 3) without having a double gable as shown>

Thanks

You may want to post on HomeTalk. This forum is for Chief Architect users. I'd try to help you out, but I'm not even sure what features your software has. I don't feel that I would be able to give you the help you need.

Might not be possible in the version you're using, but for anyone else who may have the same question...

 

Try making one (or both) of those prow front walls a "High Shed/Gable Wall".

HDA is limited to auto roofs only

 

I believe their is a help database article on how to do an auto-gen for a prow roof

 

otherwise you will need a Chief Premier user to do it for you

Add room separator at prow . Ballon frame prow walls. Prow area (room) vaulted(cathedral) .lower area cieling above or just roof ,cieling ect. Use roof planes to draw roof.

 

easy . ...

dssharp:

 

none of the HD products have manual roof tools except for HD PRO
