Roof Issues

Recommended Posts

I am trying to create a gable roof on the second floor of this house.  The 1st image shows the situation where I have to create a wall with "Roof Cuts Wall at Bottom" - much like a dormer.  When I pull the roof over to meet the siding (images 2 and 3), it creates a jog over my roof-cut wall which leaves a gap in the siding.  I have no extra breaks in this roof plane, but Chief is automatically creating this jog.  Image 4 is a plan view of the situation.  The file is huge and does not belong to me, so can't upload.  Anyone have any suggestion on what I can try?  Thanks, Kevin

Thanks Eric.  That works sorta', but now have this problem.  Is there a setting to tell Chief to build this attic wall?  Kevin

No.Things just need to be fiddled with.

 

Could you use Edit Area to cut out part of the house and post it?

Thanks Eric.  Took me a while to get the file reduced and took 10 minutes to upload a 23mb file - weird.  Really appreciate you taking a look.  Kevin

So Chief hiccups, and we need to do a dive into the darkness, and heaven forbid, drag a wall?

 

I thought that for as common a wall and roof condition as this, Chief would step in with the automatic.

 

The automatic!  ;)

Wish I could tell you the exact steps, but I'm not sure of them.

 

I changed the roof and walls. check the floor above for the new walls.

 

You could also reshape a single attic wall to fill the gap, but you would need to fix the small sloped ceiling below.

Thanks Eric.  I'll keep fiddling with it.  Kevin
