593064b08a801_RIDGERISER3.thumb.JPG.60b5e2195731cd23db422264ca928399.JPGHAS ANYONE DESIGNED A RIDGE RISER.  MUCH EASIER TO HAND DRAW AND BUILD THAN IN CHIEF, BUT NEED THIS IN CHIEF NOW.  A RIDGE RISER IS A CURVED RADIUS ROOF AT THE END OF A GABLE.  60" BACK FROM END OF RIDGE, IT CURVES UP 9" AT THE END, ALSO CURVES UP 60" DOWN DOWN THE ROOF.

ANY THOUGHT OF HOW TO GET A RIDGE TO CURVE.

 

THANKS BRIAN

The attached picture is super tiny.

Are you asking about the circled areas?

 

It looks like the gable pitch changes to accommodate the raised ridge, and the ridge flairs up at the end.

The scale is way off, but I believe you could come close.

 

Does this look like what you are after?

      Can anyone provide a link to the video that shows how to make these curved roofs over windows. 

       
      Thanks,

      Can someone take a look at the attached plan and tell me why the fascia on the curved roof extends almost to the ground?  I've never really attempted a curved roof...and really have no idea what I'm doing...either right or wrong.   
       
      I'm sure it's user error...
      Thanks!

      I'm have a hard time trying to create the roof shown in the attached photos - one plan, one mostly elevation.  This roof is on an octagonal structure.  So far, I am not having much success, despite spending a lot of time playing around with the angles at eave and ridge for the curved roof plane.  I know I need multiple roof planes, and have used a flat piece of roof for the first 25' or so of the roof with about a 1:12 pitch.  Then I start a second roof plane that is curved.  It seems that if I can get a steep enough slope up toward the ridge to match the actual roof line, then the lower part of the roof has a negative curve and goes below the first roof plane, which is no good.  I'm wondering if I need to have more than 2 roof planes per segment to get this particular roof shape...  
       
      The third image is the best attempt so far, and that is with one flat roof plane and one curved plane.  But I'm hoping to get closer to the actual roof.  Any suggestions?  This is my first time working with curved roof planes
