Boxed Eaves (Chief Architect Premier X9)

Hey everyone,

I've always struggled with roof planes and today is no exception. For whatever reason, CA isn't creating a boxed eave over the right side of the garage. I've messed around with it for a while now with no success. Are there any more experienced users that can lend a hand? It would be very much appreciated. 

Thank you,
Mark

I've not looked at the plan, but it's usually because of how the 2 roof planes meet in the corner.

 

Make the sidewall a hip instead of a gable and see if the return generates.

 

Sometimes creating a notch right where the 2 planes come together is enough. Something 1/2x1/2 might work.

 

I'll check your plan in a bit.

That's what I was suggesting rather unclearly when I said create a notch.

 

If you set the overhang on the garage wall to 21.625" (up from 21"), the returns generate.

It worked! I appreciate the help. I learned something new :)

As discussed yesterday , it is not a good idea to bring all that water into a corner like that , you will have a mini waterfall every time it rains....

That's a good point! I actually had a different roof on this house but decided to go with this one for drainage purposes due to where the lot is located. I didn't consider the mini waterfall, though. Thank you for pointing that out!
