Cannot do a shed roof

Recommended Posts

Howdy, for the life of me, I cannot have a shed roof for my porch without messing up the main roof. I want a lower pitch than the main gable roof obviously but I also want it "high up" on the gable wall itself. How can I accomplish that? Attaching my plan. As a bonus how can I lower the pitch of the current porch hip roof while keeping a "flat area" in the middle? As soon as I change the pitch it becomes 3 triangle roof planes. Thanks I do not have anymore hair to pull at this time.

Set deck room to match height of main floor-or the other way around whatever you want-right now deck room is higher.

Change to Dutch Gable per DBX here, reduce overhang some- not really a shed roof which would be near impossible here.

Like Mark said but also open the "Build Roof" - "Roof Styles" tab of the dialog and then click on the "Shed Roof" link to then study the article on how to set up for a shed roof.
