GABLE END WALL w/Sloped CLG Plane

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me why when I create this gable end wall which extend over a porch room that has a sloped ceiling plane...why the ceiling plane cuts off the gable end and it ends up sticking down below the sloped ceiling plane?  I thought if I selected "roof cuts wall at bottom"...that might help...but it didn't.  

 

In PIC #1 you can see the gable end wall sticking down below the porch sloped ceiling.

In PIC #2...I tried pulling the roof all the wall into the building and using "roof cuts wall at bottom"...but that didn't work either.

In PIC #3...I pulled the roof back to the face of the gable end wall.  Same result.

 

I'm hoping someone can help just by looking at some pics...as the file is large.  If not...I'll try to simplify the plan and upload. 

 

Thanks

Attached is a test plan that closely represents the plan I'm working on...I got the same result.  

I think I'm doing something wrong...but, not sure what.  

 

Thanks for looking...

Go to attic, draw in wall. Set to Attic Wall and Roof Cuts Wall At Bottom.

And you need to delete the wall showing under the porch roof.

Thank you Eric...that worked.  One more question...does the gable end wall above the porch ceiling (roof cuts wall at bottom) have to be a separate wall from the main gable end wall?  I had it as one long wall...and selected roof cuts at bottom...and it messed up the entire wall. 

 

Thanks again...

Chief still won't generate an automatic attic wall where no wall below exists.

Don't know if it must be separate, but it always seems to work that way. On occasion I have been able to use a single wall, but it's very plan specific.

 

Your plan, for example, has a second floor, but no defined room there, which may make a difference.

Eric...thanks much for the help and info.  The second floor may have something to do with it as I don't recall having this problem using an OOB template...which didn't have a second floor.  May have to experiment to see...

 

Thanks again.

      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
