Boxed eaves

Recommended Posts

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?

Sometimes, you can force one to build by taking it off default and specifying the length.

You have eaves at diffing heights. Check the box for higher boxed eaves and see if that works.

Away from my computer, but as I recall, you don’t get boxed eves unless soffits are turned on.  You can turn them on and use a Gap material type though.

Damn, I knew it was something super simple as this.  Thanks Micheal and Joey.  I always forget to click the soffits.

      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

      I have not had this happen before when building a roof. My trusses are not following the overhang that is showing as well as protruding from an attic wall where the framing is not building. It seems to have worked on the garage as you can see from the image. What am I missing?

      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 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.

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