Boathouse Possibility

Recommended Posts

I'm new to Chief and work for a boathouse construction company. I haven't found a way to make a stand alone structure with a roof but without wall. Any suggestions on what to try first? The pillars would have to be able to be at placed intervals instead of a patterned layout. I've tried making it as a deck but the roof has been a problem and it doesn't allow me to change the placement of the preset column underneath.

I also build boathouses.  What I have done is to make the walls invisible and then build the roof.   After that I make pilings out of solids and make them as long as required per job.

I then space them accordingly, one at a time.  I also make my own headers for the roof.  There is no auto build that I have found that would work, as the construction of each is unique.  You can work with the floor for the deck structure.

It should be just like making a Freestanding Carport (Post and Beam) or a Pole Barn if your need something a bit different....both doable in CA
