Hi, we have a split level home with 2 (meaning double) 2 x 4 exterior walls with a 3.5” air gap in between them for a total (rough) wall thickness of 10.5”. The home has 3 separate roof heights, all with a 5:12 pitch. The home is in central Minnesota (the reason behind the thick walls). I’m just getting started with Home Designer Pro and not sure how to start. I’ve watched some videos, but nothing that would help duplicate our wall design. Do you have some training materials that would help, or someone who could get it started on the software? Thanks for any help you can provide.
The red arrows point to the problem area.
The outside wall and interior wall at the closet intersect with the valley where the two roof planes intersect.
The interior of the room creates an attic wall (with exterior siding) above the closet (NOTE: Ceiling was removed to get image)
The plan view shows where the roof planes intersect at the valley. I have the same problem on the other side of the house because it is symmetrical.
The plan is too large (65MB) but here is the model (https://3d-viewer.chiefarchitect.com/go?share=543146417714334).
Any suggestion on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.
Civil engineer asked for roof plan. Currently. I have been able to display roof plains by floor level with slope markers. However, being it is a two level home...how do I display a complete roof for a layout plan? Along with dimensions for roof rain displacement calculation?
I'm using home designed pro 2021.
Circled in the picture below is the area unfilled between the lower and upper roof where there is no wall. I can extend the wall inward toward the peak to close the gap, but then area below the gap is closed off. I've experimented, googled, and watched a bunch of video tutorials on roofs. Actually seemed like one of the tutorial videos had a similar issue, but the instructor kinda glossed over it and changed to pitch on one roof to make it look a little better before moving on.
After banging my head for a few days, hoping someone has the answer.
