Tricky roof combo

Recommended Posts

Wow David! I didn't expect that!
Thanks so much, that's pretty close to what I was looking for. I think I might move that center gable further up the rake of the roof. 

That little building out back is a shed roof pool equipment shed. I haven't fixed that, but that is not part of the remodel, but yes that was funky.

I have several versions for the facade of this plan and I am just going through all options. Can I post those here and get your input? 

 

Again thank you immensely, you threw some real knowledge in there!

David, I loaded the plan, so what I think I'll do is what I said earlier and move that middle section back , which would create valleys on either side. So I will try to move that roof plane back further, like in that jpg. Thanks again

Hi David,

 

Here's that PDF of the options I think work the best for the facade. I think the option you so graciously walked through has too small an entry to work effectively.

This PDF has two options, two views of each option. I know which one I'm leaning to, I would value your opinion if you could offer.

 

Thanks!

David, one more thing. I was successful in pulling that middle gable back from the file you sent to me. But I could not pick up from your video how that wall below that gable generated. When I pulled that middle gable back everything worked but that wall didn't generate, how did you generate that wall.

Go to the attic level and draw in the gable wall, then set it to Attic wall.

      We're trying to figure out how to change the angle of pendent lights on vaulted ceilings. When we create the ceiling angle, the lights follow and aren't angled properly. How do we change the lights so they go vertical rather than at a tilt?

      Hi,
      I am using Chief Architect X8 on a Mac.
      I am having trouble with roof planes - I want to be able to change the baseline height but it keeps defaulting back and won't alter.
      Yet when I open the same file on another computer I can change it
      Any suggestions?
       
      Thanks

      Hello, I’m needing help lowering the roof. I’m trying to make a 50x80x16 shop with the pitch lower than the default gable height. I’m new to this and I’m hoping this software will help build our dreams on our farm. I want the look of the attached photo with the front being the 80 ft side.

      How do I put a roof return on this roof? Can't find a video about it anywhere on the Chief Website... is there another name for it?
       
      See attachment, and where I drew in black.
