open between clg & roof issue and back wall above exist roof

Recommended Posts

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.

You need to cut the existing roof eave overhang back where it encroaches into the new porch.

The existing roof eave is preventing the wall from building up - same as the real world.

What type of wall do you want - brick for the full width, cladding for part of it.

You may have to go up to the attic level and change the wall type.

For connection...cut roof plane back and add attic wall.


For the gap in the new roof, look at the settings for the sub-fascia. Looks like it's pushing that plane down.

      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.

      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, Is it possible to create a ceiling assembly schedule in CA? I could not find one, nor an option to assign to a custom schedule. Any tips?

      Is there a quick way to do this roofline? I tried putting another level above but its not working. I've done this years ago but can't get it now

      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?
