Rafter ends on Screen Porch

Recommended Posts

Hello. Using Chief Architect Premier X12, how can I achieve the ends of the rafters as seen in in the colored photo as opposed to my rafter ends as seen in my line drawing below? I have watched "Automatic Framing-Exposed Rafter Tails-Sub-Facia and Sheathing" and following the instructions regarding sub-facia depths yields no results. I've watched other videos, searched Chief Talk and still cannot find the specific help I seem to need. Is there other information I should include here? Would so appreciate any help.

You need a soffit. Change its material to Opening (no material).

Also, if you haven't figured it out yet, you need to change your rafters to Plumb cut, not square cut.
