    Trouble with gable roof and dormers

    Hi there, I'm using Home Designer Architectural 2017 and trying to replicate a roof design with a gable roof, 10/12 pitch, extending over front and back porches, and dormers over each porch. One gable end looks good, but the other side has an area that bumps out from the main exterior wall to house a fireplace and chimney. When I attempt a gable on that end the gable only appears on half the wall. I've tried using the gable line to extend the gable to the back porch but it's not working. Also unable to draw dormers on the roof. When I try I get a message "Dormer roof does not meet base roof, probably near the top. You may need to move the dormer down the roof or lower its height." Not sure what I'm missing. I've attached my plans and a couple of renderings showing what it should look like. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Heather mh-v1.1.plan
