How do I define an area as a room?

Hello,

 

I'm using the auto roof generation tool.  I'd like to have a partially covered deck.   It is probably obvious but how do I designate a portion of my deck as a room so I can cover that section of the deck?    I've circled in blue the section I'd like to designate as a room.   I may be asking the wrong way to do it but I'd like to extend the roof over the area I've circled.

 

Thank you.

Your deck is already a room.

 

How would you divide any room so you could have a roof over only part of it?

Thanks - that is the issue - if I select to cover it as it is in the drawing it covers the entire shaded area.   I'd like to cover just the area circled with the blue freehand line.

Use an invisible wall to define the area, then adjust the room specification DBX's as needed. Your blue line area will need the "roof over this room" checked, and the area outside will obviously need that unchecked.

Start a new plan. Draw 4 walls to form a single room. Divide that room to create 2 rooms. Turn off the roof over one of them.

 

Build a roof.

 

Your deck works the same way.

Not a problem, boss. I figured I would atleast try answer your question rather than take the time to reply to your post without actually answering anything at all.

The nice thing is that your answer is accessible now to someone else with the same question.   I haven't tried it because I had found a similar solution when you were writing your helpful response.   So other newbies like me can quickly do this same thing.    I've found myself going back to my old post 6 months later as I forgot how to do something.

 

 I threw in some posts but people get the idea.
