Gable soffit generation

Recommended Posts

I have noticed something strange.  Well strange to me, maybe it makes sense but I can't see why.  I want to make a cathedral ceiling,  The eave facia is deeper than the gable fascia and when I look at an overall view this is what I see.  Is there an easy fix for this?  The attached file is just an experimental file that I was using to learn how to control roof and soffit features.  Also to get roof framing to behave without excessive thinning.

Reads Eric's answer and then repeatedly bangs his head on the wall.

Thanks Eric for that simple fix.  I can't begin to tell you how embarrassed I feel.

I know this is an old topic but this fix didn't work for me.  The gaps are only on my gable ends and they are the thickness of my roof structure.  I don't want a closed soffit andI'm trying to have facia board turned on it's flat edge.  I don't want any trim underneath it.  I just want the siding to run up to the horizontal facia.  I reduced the sub facia as small as it will go to no avail.  What am I doing wrong?

 

Also I turned off my trusses in this view so that it's evident that the siding does not reach the flat facia.  Also I unchecked the sub-facia all together which did nothing as well.

Since you have a different problem, best to start a new topic.

 

You need a soffit to get the wall to continue up. It looks like you are trying to make a 1-1/2" thick soffit with a fascia?

Ok, I'll make a new topic.  I only want a facia at in an irregular orientation, no soffit.  I would however draw it in a different way should it solve the problem..

      The red arrows point to the problem area.
      The outside wall and interior wall at the closet intersect with the valley where the two roof planes intersect.
      The interior of the room creates an attic wall (with exterior siding) above the closet (NOTE: Ceiling was removed to get image)
      The plan view shows where the roof planes intersect at the valley. I have the same problem on the other side of the house because it is symmetrical.
      The plan is too large (65MB) but here is the model (https://3d-viewer.chiefarchitect.com/go?share=543146417714334).
       
      Any suggestion on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

      Civil engineer asked for roof plan. Currently. I have been able to display roof plains by floor level with slope markers. However, being it is a two level home...how do I display a complete roof for a layout plan? Along with dimensions for roof rain displacement calculation?

      I'm using home designed pro 2021.
       
      Circled in the picture below is the area unfilled between the lower and upper roof where there is no wall.  I can extend the wall inward toward the peak to close the gap, but then area below the gap is closed off.  I've experimented, googled, and watched a bunch of video tutorials on roofs.  Actually seemed like one of the tutorial videos had a similar issue, but the instructor kinda glossed over it and changed to pitch on one roof to make it look a little better before moving on.
       

       
      After banging my head for a few days, hoping someone has the answer.
