Roof Issues

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm fairly new to the software and having a crack at putting together a concept for a builder. I am having a couple of issues with a roof line though. I am trying to build a house with multiple skillion rooves (shed style).

 

Problem 1 - One corner of the roof is extending out on an angle. I would like this to follow the wall as per the remaining part of this roof. Im not sure what I've done here as the remainder of the roof - shape, pitch etc is drawing correctly. Red line shows where I would like this to go.

 

Problem 2  - I cant get the roof over the alfresco area to connect to the adjoining wall. It appears that because their is a shed style roof above it there is some type of clash. Blue line shows where I would like this to go.

 

I'm sure this is purely inexperience but any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

Cam

      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
