Holes in exterior walls

Recommended Posts

I have fought with this program for week, trying to make the roof do what I want it to do. I finally did enough roof pane stretching to get the roof I want, but it has left holes on gable ends. One hole goes through to the rooms below, and the other just seems to be an area without siding. Any ideas?

Sometimes you need to draw in your own wall.

 

Read up on Roof Cuts Wall At Bottom and Lower Wall Type If Split By Butting Roof.

Sometimes you have to take your attic wall and drag it to move it over

Ditto to Perry's comment on David's tutorial ... EXCELLENT!

 

Without seeing your plan, one can only guess as to what you have.  Lots of things can go wrong if you haven't done things Chiefly.

 

Attached is a simple plan which shows the attic gable filling in correctly where the wall jog is located.  I just designated the three exterior walls as gables and let Chief auto build the roof.  Check it out and have a play with it.

 

Per Erik's comment, I too have had to draw in an attic gable wall occasionally ... just go to the attic level and draw in your attic wall as needed.

Nice job Dave.  Teaching takes patience and abilities.  You have both.
