    Floating Gable

    Thanks Eric. I had to respond to the Louisiana Coast for the hurricane and then on to vacation. Sorry for the delay. This was a great help. I managed to build both the gable (8 in 12) and the shed roof (4 in 12) and I'm really close. The only thing left is figuring out the crickets. They are confusing to me. William New Roof.plan

    Floating Gable

    I need roof help again. I have been getting better with my roof editing skills and had gained a little confidence.....until today. Attached is a plan I finished for a customer last month. Today I received the attached photo. They are wanting to add the gable and a shed roof over the front porch covered with metal. I made a few attempts tonight but haven't figured it out yet. How would you go about accomplishing this? Wes William.plan

    I wanted to take a second to thank the both of you for taking the time to help me the other day. I finally got things figured out and have attached the finished model. Eric, I used a automatic dormer, exploded it, and made the necessary changes and that worked out pretty well. Thank you for the tutorial. I hope to have some time for practice soon where I can try building the manual dormer as you showed. I look forward to a live online roof class from Chief Architect. Butler_Plan.plan

    This is what happens when I try to apply a lower and upper pitch to my roof. Butler_Roof.plan

    I have attached my latest save. I have everything worked out with the exception of the roof over the porch. Butler_Plan.plan

    You've accomplished exactly what I want in a relatively short amount of time. I've spent the same amount of time searching and watching tutorials and still don't know how to do it.

    I also need that higher ridge line to extend over the great room because she wants a vaulted ceiling. I have really enjoyed learning most of this program with the distinct exception of the roof platform. It's very frustrating for me.

    The customer wants the brick painted white. I just haven't changed the materials yet. I would like to learn your technique for making the gable in the center of the house. Did you build the roof manually or auto? Your model is what I was trying to achieve with the addition of the gable over the front porch.

    Great tutorial. To the point and simple. That's exactly what I'm trying to accomplish. I guess my only question would be how can I raise the top plate of the front wall without raising the interior ceiling height. This would give me more slope over the front porch. This detail is in every picture the customer sends me from Pinterest. She wants that farmhouse look.

    I'm sorry I'm having trouble getting a screenshot but I attached the new plan with the changes. I'm trying to make the shed roof over the porch so that the rafters will rest on the front wall of the house. Butler_Plan.plan

    I got it. I had to draw the room divider on the first floor. Thank you.

    The first picture that is.

    Yes. That's exactly what I'm trying to accomplish. How did you achieve that? I tried drawing a room divider on the attic floor but it told me to create a second floor.

    I have attached a plan I am working on. The front door of the plan creates an alcove over which I created a gable roof. What I'm having trouble figuring out is how to make the gable end a straight wall instead of an alcove. This will create a flat ceiling over the alcove. I will also be trying to figure out how the add a 4 in 12 shed roof over the front porch but figured it might be easier after I figured out the gable end. Any suggestions?

    Bonus Room Dormer

    I must not have the right options picked. When I try the auto dormer, the floating dormer says "cannot place dormer here, other walls are in the way" and the auto dormer says "can't find a wall to place the rear of this dormer". I found a tutorial on youtube for manual dormer but it requires drawing a polyline over the the walls and converting it to a hole in roof. When I open the convert dialogue for the polyline in my program, I don't have that option.
