Opposite roof pitches

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I got the the attached graph paper file from a client who wants his roof to look this way.  The roofing is to be corrugated metal. I know this can be physically accomplished in the real world because the metal can be cut. However, I have been very unsuccessful  in getting this to work in chief.  I need to know if anyone has been able to complete a look like this and if so, how did you do it. Thank you in advance for your thoughts and input.

A look like what? How does the drawing match the diagram?

 

3D sketch of the roof?

I'm not sure that can be done in the real world.  It would mean a metal sheet would have to twist.  I'm not a roofer but I would check with one before I started figuring out how to model it.

Eric has a point - you're plan diagram and your elevation do not match. Regardless, it can't be done as drawn, which is why you're having a difficult time modeling it in Chief.

The join between the roof planes must be angled or the closer wall in the graph paper sketch must be sloped at the baseline of the roof.

You can raise the large roof to provide a wall against which the small roof can terminate:

Or you can slope both roof planes in the same direction and join them along the common edge:

Or you could create a hipped intersection:

There are other possibilities as well, but what you want is not doable.

Thanks guys. Chop saw, I figured as much.It will require a twist and some serious cutting, even then I doubt it would have   really worked well.  I wanted to double check before I told them and faced the  "what do you mean I can't do it this way" look,. It's nice to know every once in a while that I am not totally off. Thanks!!!
