How do I get the siding to show up on in the gable? See attached pictures.. Also, what is the best way to align the eyebrows along the front?


Thanks in advanced..

Could be a number of things. Attaching the plan will get you a quick answer usually without a lot of guessing.

Chief auto builds attic walls when there is a wall below. If not, you are responsible for the wall.

      I've been recreating the "Paradise Rises" drawings as a learning exercise.  I get to this point (file attached) and noticed the eaves are boxed.  (I did start with a similar previous file and "Saved As" to save myself some time.)  I select rebuild roofs and uncheck the boxed eaves.  Then the siding on the upstairs bump outs disappear.  Ugh!  Very frustrating.  Of course, I rebuild the roofs and put the boxed eaves back.  Tried redrawing the walls.  Nothing seems to be working.

      How do I get the gable roof planes to stop automatically adding these eave ridges or whatever they may be onto the planes?

      I cannot figure out how to ge small gable roof above Bedroom 4 on study side to fill out correctly, fascia not showing.. Also porte-co-chere on 1st floor roof to be flat with siding on left side on front part.
      Any help would be appreciated.

      I have a persistent problem with gaps in my porch ceilings in between the finished surface and the underside of the roof structure.  I know it has to be a setting i have wrong but i cannot figure it out! Current project is a barndominium with a gable porch. 
      Thanks in advance

      I think I have an issue with my "template" plan as I cannot get walls located above invisible walls to build correctly.  The wall in the attached plan is where the ceiling transitions from 12' tall to a room with a 9' tall ceiling.  I attempted the same drawing in a stock Chief template plan and everything worked like it's supposed, I gather I have a setting in my template plan that is goofy...
