Exterior Roof and elevation issues.

Recommended Posts

1. The gable above the 12 ft porch at roof is going intor first first floor ceilng.
It also needs to fit a 2'6"x4' window in the gable. Be open to living room.
Trying to match attach picture.

2. I cannot get the 12 ft and 8' Porch roofs to angle up and catch the main gable roofs fascias. The main roof is going below celings of porches.

 

I would appreciate any help.

I believe auto roofs will build this roof, if set up correctly.

 

For the main roof, drag it up above the porch roof, then join them.

 

Raise the gable roof planes up -- I tried 40" I think. Join them to the porch roof.

 

Open a wedge shape in the main roof, then join the gable to it to open the gable to the inside.

 

Looks like you have some platform issues as well on the 2nd floor. Floor heights, no room definitions etc.

 

You may also need to modify the porch roof, depending on other settings.

Select one, Lock Pitch, adjust any of the other dimensions.

Also, moving all the roof planes to the same floor often helps when working in plan view. Right click on a roof plane, select Display On Floor Above -- or Below depending on which ones you are moving.
