All,

 

I am working on a house that the customer wants a vaulted gable roof over the great room. I would like to get this gable roof to span the entire great room if I could, but can't seem to get the roof lines to work. I also don't want a very tall gable wall at the great room. See the below images to what I am talking about. I also attached the plan file for reference.

Any suggestions or help will be appreciated.

 

Thank you in advance,

 

Chris

What's the problem?

 

The problems is I can't figure out how to get the gable roof to go farther back in the Great Room, so all of the great room has the same vaulted ceiling. It looks like I almost need the ridge elevation of the main roof and great room roof to match. Just looking for another set of eyes basically.

Have you tried a lower pitched framed ceiling over the great room but under the main roof? Will take some testing to see what pitch would work. Also might require a structural ridge on the high main roof over the great room area to carry the load of the main roof rafters. A 2-story great room ceiling with a reverse gable coming out the back and over the rear porch might work also.

I removed the ceiling and the roof planes you used to create the vault cover the entire space.

No I haven't. I always use structural ridges, hence why I think the roof over the great room needs to go back to the front wall of the great room, so I can post it down or connect it to the main ridge. The client wants to have the gable as shown, because they want windows up in the gable end.

Okay, I will give it a try.

Thanks Eric for the help. I guess I was over thinking it.

      Hey All,
      Please help me to create roof over a floor without walls but with only beam/pillars. I want it to be open terrace but covered from above.
      Thanks!

      Hello,
      I have a soffit that just wants to be angled. I auto created the roofs and this happened. So I deleted that part and made my own - same thing. So I mirrored the rear roof at 45 into place - same thing. I have included the plan - anyone know why this is happening or how to fix it?

      Hello, I am trying to put together a floating deck on top of a roof patio. As soon as I draw the deck it cut a hole in the roof slab. How can I achieve to show the deck?

      can anyone explain how and help me enclose between this new gable roof and ceiling. Also looking toward house thru gable closing in with Hardi-siding. The old roof is showing thru and something else when I do a rendering (see attached). Need to look good for a client in 3 D. They are adding a roof over existing 10' x 20' patio. 
       
      thank you if you can help.
