Porch Gable issue

Recommended Posts

Can anyone assist me in geting the porch gable to fill up on this project. I am needing to create a 30" ht. stone colum with 6" cedar post going to ceiling also

 

Thanks.

Randy, this is not a difficult task.

 

Open your plan

1) Turn the "Roof, Planes " layer on. 

2) Connect roof planes

3) Select each plane of this porch gable and set same height as a fascia height of your main roof. In this case it is 110 7/16"

4) Select planes at the ridge and use "2" to connect them.

 

I am not 100% sure what ceiling you intend to put.

 

If you check with the room porch DBX.

You ceiling height is set at 169". That will create a nice exposed vault.

If you want a flat ceiling you need to set it to something like 96"

it will not let me change to 110 7/16" and 4:12 pitch. I change one and it changes the other if I lock one?

Did you open the plan I attached above?

 

Change the ceiling height for the porch to 96". You will see the gable.

1) Set your floor defaults. You have the ceiling at 160 something and should be 108.

 

2) Edit>Reset To Defaults

 

Select all the options.

 

3) Set the 2 end walls and the front porch wall to Full Gable.

 

4) Build the roof.

First lock the pitch and set you fascia height to 110 7/16".

Now lock the fascia height and set your pitch to 4:12.

 

Practice, practice, practice.

Newel,

Give Eric a point for fixing your plan, he has fixed other plans for you in the past. "Solver" is a fitting tittle for Eric.

This forum is the best source for quick HELP with Chief Architect and always has been. Scott we all owe you a "thank you" too, you have helped many. I must add this bit of humor, Scott you have also "ticked off" many, lol.

      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

      An enclosed porch can be a welcome reprieve from the blazing sun in the summer months, and provide a protected cove during cooler times.
