False Shed Dormer

Recommended Posts

Good morning, I'm having issues creating a false shed dormer. This is my first. I want it place basically right over the front entry door. I do not want to see the dormer from inside the house. Any help? or point me to a forum post. Thank you,

Why not just use a "floating dormer"?  If it doesn't need to connect to anything inside that probably would work.

I tried that, but it gave me an error saying...

Dormer roof does not meet base roof, probably near the top. You need to move the dormer down the roof or lower its height.

 

and then says cannot build walls for this dormer here because existing walls are in the way. It need to be moved to another position.

The problem is most likely in your roof design in relation to what dormer you want to see.  I can fit a auto-dormer in, but you have to enter parameters that work....although, the roof space is a bit tight in that area to make it work.
