The upper section sits on top of the "Knee Wall" which in this instance is actually a full height wall

Thats great Eric. How did you accomplish that?  I am also trying to put 2 gable dormers in the steep roof plane.  I am pretty new to this.

I've got this far but can't seem to close the roof place without screwing up the ceiling.

Steep pitch for the roof planes on the lower floor. 

 

Ceiling structure for 1st floor set like floor structure on second floor. Does not match your drawing as the lower roof needs to sit on the second floor deck, not on the first floor wall.

 

All the roofs may need to be built in the 2nd floor.

 

This is similar to a 1-1/2 story, so check the Knowledge Base for articles.

 

This is all auto built (did not use the dormer tool), but the inside of the dormer has problems.

Give it a try and post your plan file if you get stuck.
