Didn't Stephen help you with this?

Create your 3 1/2" pitch first, then start your 12" pitch right at the top of the 3 1/2" pitch.

Chief will sort of blend the two together although they will actually be separate roof planes.

Auto won't work 100% of the time especially in that weird Corner created by the 45° Wall , looks like CA is Confused by something , so you will need to do some manual work.

 

Try copy and paste in place of the existing plane and change the pitch to 12 and use it for the upper pitch , you will need to resize it and rejoin it to the other roofs. ( shortcut is 2 key )

 

The original plane you can pull back so it is just over the Soffit Areas as needed....

 

P.S.

-You also have a number of reversed walls with blue siding showing inside , eg around the front door.

- also if you set the Alcove size to 100" in the Build roof Dialog the roof will build straight over the Alcove at the back. ( assuming you want that)

 

 

As you can see I didn't finish it, but ......

      I'm using X11 premier on a mac -- I have an exterior garage wall (with a centered garage door) and a gable end -- I'd like to split the attic wall of the gable end into 3 parts -- the central region above the garage door, and the left and right, to have a different material above the garage door.

      I have Default Settings > Roof > Auto Rebuild Roof set to Off
      I have Default Settings > Framing > Automatically Build Floor and Ceiling Framing Off on all framing types.
      I have Default Settings > Walls > General Walls > Auto Rebuild Attic Walls set to Off

      If I delete the roof and ceiling planes with Build > Roof > Delete [X] and then use the Build > Roof > Build Roof ... dialog to rebuild the roof and attic from scratch -- I leave the Auto Rebuild Roofs set to Off, to be clear -- and then edit the resulting gable roof on the attic layer, I can split it twice to produce the three separate wall sections, but once I change the exterior material on any of the sections, the three wall segments get replaced with a single wall again.  The new wall has my selected material, but that does me no good as I need the distinct secgments.

      Anyone know what setting do I need to turn off to maintain the manually edited gable end?  Or is this a mac bug?

      Or, barring that, does anyone know what approach will let me give the desired finish detail (attached a pic of a freehand elevation)?

      I'm using Chief Architect Premier X11
       
      I have all these little 'X's can someone please tell me how to get rid of them?  I've been really playing around with the roof and i THINK they are from that but at the same time i have a couple random ones outside where the roof is -- i cannot get them to go away. Help!
       
      thanks in advance

      Hello, We are having a hard time getting  the design program to do the roof right. We have tried with Sketchup and it got the closest. It's hard to describe I have attached a few pics with a decent idea of what we are trying to do.
       
      The Garage is a shed roof as well as the breeze way, but they are at different angles. The house is a butterfly style with the V running at a angle. WE do not care what the pitch ends up being on any of the roofs.
       
      Anyone know how to do this. I have been trying for hours and the program goes crazy every time. Esp with the all 3 roofs at different angles with each other. I have attached a copy of the plan we made and some pics from sketchup because that program got the closest to what we are trying to do.
       
      Thanks

      I wonder why my second floor loft flooring is sticking through the roof and can be seen on the outside of the building?
