Shed Roof Laying On Top of Gable Roof - Framing/Materials
I've been struggling the last hour in getting a vaulted shed roof to plug back into a gable roof.
The shed roof portion is a later master bedroom addition built onto a mid-century house. This addition roof drains back to the gable roof of the main house. (It's the short addition below at the top right of plan).
Any help would be appreciated. I'm guessing the roofs could be auto-generated, but I'm not understanding the correct settings. I've attached a zipped plan.
So as per a prior question, I am manually drawing a subset of my roof.
With the roof overdraw feature enabled I got these nice shoe plates that look correct. Is there a way to manually draw these? I feel like I've tried every object type under "Roof Framing Tools" but they all end up as blocking rather than resting on top of the rafters.
And yes I have tried changing the "Role" of the object to "Shoe Plate". It seems to have no effect.
I'm using Chief Architect Premier X14.
Creating a Header schedule I select one row & click the "Find Object in Plan" which takes me to the wall frame view instead of the plan view.
Do I have a setting off or is this normal?
So I'm trying to get my rafter ends to show up like so (please ignore the rafter tails for all intent and purposes). I've tried adjusting the birdsmouth settings to get the desired result but no matter what I do, I can't get the seat cut. I can only get a plumb cut or a square cut, and the plumb cut is going through the floor and walls. Can someone please help, because this is driving me crazy! (also the steeper roof pitch is 25":12")
