Joining two roofs at ridge

Recommended Posts

I want to add a porch and roof and meet an existing root at specific location. How to I specify the specific location?

See attach. I've fixed the location of the dormer. The porch roof (shed type) needs to end here and on top of the porch beam.  The pitch is what ever it needs to be. I tried to specify two pitches on the porch wall, but I don't distance from the porch wall to the a point just in front of the dormer.

I tried to move the baseline up on the main roof thinking Chief would tell me the height and then I could change the ridge height of the porch roof to match. I couldn't get it to work.

Draw your roof over the porch dragging it up to meet the roof it needs to connect to. Open the roof plane and set its ridge equal to the fascia top height from the upper roof plane.

      Hi, 
      I am having some problems with getting the garage roof to be an 11/12 pitch and the attached house being 8/12 pitch, one of the roof planes is part of the garage and apart of the house. I am new to this and can't draw the roof manually very well. I have been using the auto roof and just changing the settings. 
       
      Thank you!May- Lot 73.plan

      Hi, I have done some manual changes to the roof. And I want to add a porch roof to the entry. When I choose to build roof and retain my manual changes, it then changes my attic wall over the garage by lowering the top of wall and changing its formation. I have attached before and after pics (PNG & PDF) and the CA file in X12. Please let me know if you have any question that may help you help me.
       
      Thank you

      How do I put a roof return on this roof? Can't find a video about it anywhere on the Chief Website... is there another name for it?
       
      See attachment, and where I drew in black.

      I know this discussion has been discussed before but I am having an issue with the roofs overhangs.  I have not had this issue before as most of the time the Boxed overhangs have worked but not this time.  I have tried everything in the book to make my overhangs boxed and nothing is working.  Any idea why my overhangs will show a boxed overhang?

      How do you isolate an existing drawn roof and still modify others.
