Roof Issues

Recommended Posts

I've been having issues with auto build roofs. I'm new to this program so be easy on my design but I know I'm doing something wrong.

I am trying to build a Gable roof, I have gabled ends but in auto build roofs it wants to hip the roof and create almost a hand raftered roof instead of one with trusses. I want to be able to have one/two ridges where the plan keeps trying to create 3 or more depending on how I move the walls.

The plan shows as being corrupted.

This is probably a very simple roof design that would only take a few minutes to create. I have some time tonight to look at it in more detail with you if you'd like. Do you have a pic of what you're trying to achieve? Is this a existing structure? Feel free to drop me an email rjddesignconcepts@gmail.com

Thank you that does help a tad but that's not exactly what I'm trying to achieve but what I'm trying to achieve may not be able to do.

I'm wanting a connecting double gable in the front, like the picture attached and a single ridge line through the house and garage.

Can I ask, how you did that with the roof though, I'm still a newbie to this and I couldn't even figure how to do that!

I do like the roof that way & I'll probably keep it that way just didn't know if it could have one ridge line across or not.

It's a give and take process. You could have a single ridge, but other things will need to change, so what's more important?

 

This image does not help, just shows another way.

Thank you! I think I will go with the first way you and shaneK did it, but I really like what you did with my entrance!

Thank you!!!
