Can't get the roof plan of the attached photo right

Recommended Posts

I have been struggling to draw the roof plan of the attached photo without much success. I watched many videos on creating dormers, but to no avail.  The house is a 2-story building.  Can anybody help?

Welcome

 

It's helpful to have a simple plan file and a clear description of the problem. So many ways of doing things in Chief.

 

Are you auto or manually building the roof?

 

What exactly is the problem?

 

Also good to know what software you are using. It helps others to have this info in your signature so it's always available.

 

See this topic for a signature how to.

I'm sure there are more proper methods, but my "jank" solution would be to break the 2nd floor wall +/-24" from each end.  Set the interior portion to build as gable, outside as hip, then autobuild.  The eyebrow could be set manually.

Yep that works.

The eyebrow can be set in the gable wall's DBX Roof tab, Auto Roof Return.

Thanks Chris.  Could you send me step-by-step of what you did?

 

madcow's post right above mine explains it pretty well.
