    Wall material

    Not sure what you are asking. Thermo Ply may not be a stock material so you might need to make your own. See the links above for more info.

    Please use Home Designer instead of Chief Architect. Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using. You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left. Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

    Roof over window

    Draw it manually. You might also create an Open Below room there and change the roof overhang to use in auto building the roof.

    How to create this front gable

    I forgot to show you how to raise a gable, sorry but basically you form a room on the second floor, centered upon the second floor and then raise the ceiling height of that room to the height you intend to raise the gable. the exterior wall you then break off from the one long wall using the "Break Wall Tool"a and then program the selected segment and designate that wall segment via its Roof Tab to be a gable wall. The raised ceiling will cause the resulting gable to rise above the adjoining roof planes. DJP

    Making the wall invisible first left a whole on the side elevation but now I have opened the drawing in Pro, it is fine. Setting the wall below to Balloon Through Ceiling Above did nothing. Problem resolved. Thank you
