Varying roof structure at adjacent roof planes.

Recommended Posts

I recently bought Chief architect Premier, and have been seeing how it compares to Revit. There is something I have not been able to find an answer on though, I would appreciate your help on it.

I want to make a one and a half story house, the main roof requires multiple framing types within the same roof plane. The front will have conventional roof framing, and the rear will have timber framing with rigid insulation and tongue and groove. How can I build this and have the outside of the roof line up correctly, along with the textures? What is the best way Chief can achieve this? Can you create two separate roofs on top of each other, one being the roofing and exterior sheathing, and the other with the foam and tongue and groove? Or do I create two different roof styles next to each other? When I make two roofs next to each other the roof textures do not line up.

 

Thank you

Caleb

If I am understanding the request properly you can set a custom ceiling structure for that room with the rigid foam and the tongue and groove.

Close Eric, I need the change in the other direction, side to side. Is that possible?

Hi Ryan, that sounds great. However what would you do about the timber rafters that go under the tongue and groove ceiling?

Give it a try :)

 

How did you do that? With two roofs or structural layers?

Just adjust each roof layer as you want it to be constructed.  See attached.  Roofs align at ridge...but each has a different structure2020-03-03_14-51-43.thumb.png.782f9996b376e9d650b9cf25786baf03.png2020-03-03_14-50-38.thumb.png.ac5600c72d35a53e8065b9397dd8bdd8.png2020-03-03_14-56-16.thumb.png.fa11a2ee6b58d9d55f9d420d773ea145.png

Just set your Ceiling plane manually as well as set your rafters to the right height.  I do it all the time with timber framed porches just without the rigid.
