Birdbox Roof Overhang

Recommended Posts

Building these is a PITA, is there a better way?

I just guess at the locations of the roof baseline when creating the roof planes needed.

Once you have one you can copy but that first one is tedious work.

 

Any ideas?

Mick, Not the same roof, but thanks. The roof built can not be modified to look like what I wanted.

 

Eric, Do not understand the process but will try again when I return in a few hours.

 

Thanks

I didn't open your plan , it appeared to be a standard roof return so I didn't go any further.....

 

what is it you want to do?

Alan when you select the roof return there is an option to "extend" the roof return. Set that to 8"-10" and see what you get. I bet you get what you are looking for.

That would be my guess too.... make the extension the same as the Overhang though perhaps....

If the Roof over the garage Door is supposed to extend all the way across you may need to break it's edge and drag it left manually and join it to the Porch roof.

 

Auto Returns seem to work all right though in your plan....
