Hello,

   I am looking for advice on drawing this roof.  I just can't seem to get it right.  It is an 8/12 pitch.  Slopes down. This part is not the issue.  The issues are creating a gable roofline at the entry - note it is not centered .  Also having trouble with the roof above the front window.  I would like to see the correct look on the interior view .  The interior is my main priority.  Thank you.  Actual photos and floor plan are attached.

What's the issue and what is not centered? What type of "trouble with the roof above the front window"?

 

I don't see roof planes in your plan images, no front door etc.

You can do much of this manually, or get a good start with the auto roof tool.

 

Read up on the Gable/Roof Line and Roof Baseline Polyline tools. One or the other, not both might help in front.

 

You probably need a porch in front of the door and set the front wall to full gable. 

 

I can't see the front of the house well enough to give specific recommendations.

 

If you have a better view of the house front, post it and the plan file, and I or someone will take a look.

 Thank you,I think the porch helped. This looks better.   I actually made a room in front of the bay window as well to get the gable roof and then deleted.
