Recommended Posts

Hello - I need to finish a plan but can't seem to figure out my very last little issue. I need to add a small gable over this front porch. The roof is a high shed roof, gabled on the right side. Any ideas? I've tried changing the porch roof to a gable and nothing happens, I've tried a bunch of other little things and all it does is mess with the roof pitch of that area. 

Thanks in Advance - Keenan

Manually draw the needed roof planes.

Solver, can you please recommend a tutorial? I’ve looked at a couple and they don’t necessarily explain what I need. 

Thanks for your response.

You should post the plan...

Also...where do you want this gable roof?  Do you want it located above the 2nd floor plate...or at first floor line to enclose the porch (this would be a bad idea...)

I can try to post the plan later when I am at my computer. The would be on the roofline. So above the porch. Thanks!

I think you’re client's bigger problem will be the flooding in his home. 

Please see an architect or draftsman to correct your roof. 

I’m not sure why nobody has mentioned it here yet. 

I didn’t open the plan. I’m just looking at the first image in the post. Yikes!

You got that by looking at the front elevation pic? Impressive. I don't think he understood when he was asked to post his plan. He shared the layout in a pdf format. Not the plan file.

I got it work with the ROOF GABLE LINE that Scott Harris recommended. Michael_Gia - I posted a different view of the elevation. 

 

Thank you all for your suggestions!

 

Trying to get a profile pic to upload but all my files are too big!

      I cannot get the breezeway roof on the opposite side to work and slope with stairs. I would appreciate any help.

      New to CA Architect 2021. Doing an addition that includes an attic room. I'm having trouble matching the roof and cieling deminsions for that area. It includes a flat and angled cieling plus pony walls that are also exterior walls. See the sketch with finished interior deminsions. Any help is appreciated.

      I am looking for some help on a roof plan I am working on (copying a 2d elevation from an architect) and can't seem to get this to look right! 
      (Also, I don't typically do exterior renderings and thought I would get some practice in - but clearly have no idea what I am doing :))

      I cannot seem to figure out how to make this exposed gable have the same shiplap siding on it that the house has. I built the patio piece by piece using framing members and added roof planes and ceiling planes then added the gable. Now II cannot figure out how to add siding.

      First post here, this is my first attempt at roof truss. As you will see in the PDF attached the gables that are on the front of the duplex are being supported by the truss that are running in the vertical direction. I am wondering if this is normal as i cannot seem to create truss for the gables on the font of the home. If there is a more effective means of building roof truss for roofs of this style id love to hear them.
