I would appreciate any help on this small remodleing of veranda addition. Attached is picture of existing. I am trying to added roof in midde. most of house is 7,3:12  pitch. But they have a  min. of 4:12 pitch. (but the roof they have in there now on paito as you see in pics is less than that!) tying to keep windows.

 

I cannot get it to work out.

Newell,

You will have a very hard time roofing that as you want.

If it were mine, I would leave the existing roof as is and use a flat, waterproof, operable roof something like this:

You get a waterproof roof that you can open on sunny days - particularly suitable in a case such as yours where the verandah is so deep that it will reduce the amount of light reaching the living room doors.

It would probably cost less than changing the existing roof.

It would also be a great feature of the verandah and add some interest.

Hi Newell ,

 

looking at the Photos I don't think your floor plan is 100% accurate , my (rough) guess it the Curved wall radius is about 12'  as there is a straight section either side of the curve both in the existing Verandah and in the upper Window curved wall where there is also a bump out on the left of about 16"  ?

 

The easiest way is to let CA auto build the House roof without any roof over the existing verandah and then turn off Auto Build and draw your own Roof plane in from the New Verandah Wall (beam) , it looks like 2.5 deg. works if you want to keep the upper windows using your plan foot print , which would mean you'd need Flat granulated Roofing Materials not Shingles on it. playing with the Depth and or height of the new Verandah may get you back to 3 deg. the minimum for most shingles.

Hi Glenn , I didn't understand the 4:12 pitch comment either ( HOA ,City,Owner?),  but at 4:12 you would lose the Windows , so I just tried what I thought would work, doing a Cross Section through the Verandah / Windows may help too , but an accurate As-Built would be a must , and the Drawings are different from the Photos.

 

If the Windows were changed out to 12"-16" high versions to still allow light / Air flow 4 :12 will work by the look of it.... see green CAD Line below

      I can't figure out why my walls are not meeting the roof.
      I run into this a lot and usually finagle walls by puling on their handles etc but changing from gable wall to hip wall etc seems to make no difference in how the wall acts.
      I just want them to act like when I first drew them where they just automatically connect with the roof.

      I'm having a problem getting a deck to remain when I try to contain it under a roof.  The function of the roofs to the covered deck are to make a covered walkway to the covered deck.  I didn't know where to begin searching for this issue so I'm posting this.
       
      The attached screenshot shows where I'm able to get the roof and deck to look right (4'-1") and where the deck room conflicts with the roof (4'-0").  Ideally, I would make these both 4'-0".  When I try to adjust the deck rail in or out from the back of the house (shown at 4'-0") the deck disappears.
       
      I have attached the .pln file.  Any advise is appreciated.

      Ever since I upgraded to X14 I've had an issue where the trim doesn't populate on some of my roofs / roof belts. Has anyone else had this issue? Maybe I should try reinstalling X14? These roofs were copied from the adjacent roof that has the trim and has the same properties. It just makes no sense. I sent a request to support, and they couldn't recreate it at the time.

      I'm trying to draw a skirt roof but the fascia is not showing, see screenshot. Any ideas? I just updated to X14 so not sure if this is a glitch? I've never had issues with this in the past using older versions!
