Gable Pediment

Recommended Posts

I don't like the Gable Accents Chief includes.  Can I get someone to build me a version of this that I can adjust manually for different gables?  I build these onsite without the 2x materials.  Just the lower portion.

 

Thanks for the help.

If I'm not mistaken Alaskan_Son did a nice video

demonstrating how to build that. The bad news is

that I wouldn't know where to start a forum search

for said video. Perhaps you should look him up or

vice versa.

Do you have a shop drawing of a standard one that you use with a few measurements of the detail and stock size ?

I don't believe a symbol will resize correctly. All the parts will stretch or compress as its shape is changed.

You can follow this steps to create one with your dims.

1- open new plan and shoot elevation

2- draw the shape of all members(except the center piece) using cad poly lines and convert to poly line solid

3- draw the profile of your center piece using cad line and add it to your library. Use that molding line in plan view by click and drag to its plan dimentions and that is done. Finally position it to where it should be.( follow the video if you are not familiar with step 3, I hope creating PL solid using cad lines and converting it to p.s is quite easy)

4- Convert it to symbol, go back to your plan, put it there and done.

 

Here is a short video on how to

(Major area of concern here is step 3, hope the rest is straight forward using PS)

      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

      I think I have an issue with my "template" plan as I cannot get walls located above invisible walls to build correctly.  The wall in the attached plan is where the ceiling transitions from 12' tall to a room with a 9' tall ceiling.  I attempted the same drawing in a stock Chief template plan and everything worked like it's supposed to...so, I gather I have a setting in my template plan that is goofy...
       

      Thanks!

      Hello - I need to finish a plan but can't seem to figure out my very last little issue. I need to add a small gable over this front porch. The roof is a high shed roof, gabled on the right side. Any ideas? I've tried changing the porch roof to a gable and nothing happens, I've tried a bunch of other little things and all it does is mess with the roof pitch of that area. 
      Thanks in Advance - Keenan
