Design Roof with Dormer

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm having difficulty getting Chief Architect Home Designer Pro to allow me to design a roof that the base of the roof is equal to the grade of the 2nd level floor. It insists on having a wall, however, once I place a wall it extrudes the top of the roof. 

How do I design this? 

Also, it does not allow me to change the design of the roof to gable after designating the walls. Anyone have experience with this? 

Basically, the 2nd floor is built inside the roof.
