Split wall finishes

Recommended Posts

I would like the upper walls on the back false dormer to be shingle and the lower section siding.  The back wall worked on one side and then didn't on the other.  I selected the option in the wall "roof section" to have a siding wall below if cut by roof but ???  I have tried dragging portions and moving the roof too.

I will also need the side sections of this upper wall (false dormer) to be the same.  I have tried a couple options but nothing seems to work.  I considered a pony wall but that will not work on the side walls.

I could not get the Lower Wall Type if Split by Butting Roof to work, but a Wall Material Region will cover it up.

Thanks Eric. I may have to do all those sections that way but it never looks quite right for the corners. I still do not know why the split wall doesn't work so I'll send it in for support to look at. I was wondering if I should do an attic wall for those 2 side sections. May give it a go and see if I can get that to work.

You can also consider using a pony wall and then just break and reshape as necessary in elevation.

I will also give that a try for the side walls. I really thought the back wall should work right across with the split wall (abutting roof) because I'm sure I have done it before in a similar situation.

      hello,
      I had no idea there was a forum.  this is great!  I have one question for any knowledgeable experts out there!  
      is there a way to use auto roof planes & lock all the top heights of the roof ridges so that they all match?  I've been working on my house plan for a few months now & have created manual roof planes to do what I am kind of after, but it is a real pia when a wall needs bumped out or something is revised.  all the rooms are set to the same height, yet it generates roof planes all over the place [height wise].. I've had better results with baseline polyline manipulation, but still left with the same issue.  I want to check a box that says "lock all full gable ridge heights" & let the pitch be the variable.  basically I want full gable ridges 1,2&3 to all be the same height and span the main 3 structures of the house. but when I generate auto roofs, its a mess!  
      I also need gable 3 to slope over the porch at a lower pitch and join with gable 1- auto roof bones a hip over porch, if I change the roof group of the octagon nook it gets even wilder!

      thanks in advance!

      When I'm building my roof, I put in a dimension for my roof overhang and it doesn't matter what number I put in the dialog box, it only draws it at 20" deep. What am I doing wrong? I need to fix this so I can draw my roof lines correctly and send out for a roofing quote. I am using Chief Architect Premier X12.
      Thank you, Melissa
