Hi - I am planning an extension of a home. The old house has a gable roof and I am trying to connect a new gable roof perpendicular to it. Although, I can do a connection with old roof as it is, i.e., with an overlap, I am not able to remove the rafters from old roof to create a triangle path through the old roof into the new roof. i.e., I do not want the section of the old roof over which the perpendicular gable roof is attached/overlaps. please let me know if I am unclear.
hope you can tell me how CA can show the exact truss / roof framing that my builder can use.
Can anyone tell me why my roof trusses are not showing when I draw them in on this plan? I've watched every video and cannot work them out. The closest I came was getting trusses with vertical studs/gable end style.
Uploaded them to online docs due to size:
Also, I am trying to show 22mm battens on top of the truss, and attached to the ceiling for the wall plasterboard to attached to (Australian style). Does anyone know how to set this up? see attached
Hi, I am trying to continue the exterior wall up to the dormer. When I exploded the auto dormer and extended the roofline it cuts off the gutter and eave boxes. I don't know if there is a better method for this or an easy fix, that's why I'm here. Thanks in advance.
I need advice on how to create a cathedral ceiling for a great room that has one exterior wall and three interior walls. The external wall that faces the back patio I want the patio roof to be a gable roof with no flat ceiling. I want a cathedral ceiling in the great room, but I want the cathedral structure to run 90 degrees perpendicular to the patio cathedral ceiling. I have have searched the chief talk forum and looked for Youtube videos for solutions, but can't find anything which helps me. I'm attaching a basic floor plan which illustrates what I see when in the great room with a camera view.
