Change height of Gable Wall but keep on the same roof pitch.

Recommended Posts

I am new to Chief Architect as I have been using other not so good software for a while. However, but being in software support I understand the need to research my question before posting. After hours of searching and trial and error I have resorted to the experts. 

 

I have a gable wall and in front of that gable wall there are two other gables that pop out from the main wall. (See picture I am trying to recreate) The first gable pop out extends higher than the normal wall height, but I can't figure out how to make the wall longer while still maintaining the same roof pitch as the main gable. 

 

See attached image for the gable I am having issues with and attached snips of current look. I have searched the forums and watched several YouTube videos but have yet to find the correct combination. 

 

I've tried adding room dividers, half walls then changing the heights, doing the clear story method outlined in the below YouTube video, etc, but have not been able to get it. Any advice is much appreciated.
