    JoAnn...THIS IS AWESOME. Did you do as David suggested and align some of the external walls to get the auto build roof to work?

    David, Let me take the time to thank you for looking at my plan and giving me some valuable pointers with the roof design and the floor plan geometry! The video was more than I expected and certainly very eye-opening when someone with as much experience as you takes a look at it. Yes, I agree about the ridge line of the roof and will work on get that straightened out this weekend. The covered deck in the back was really going to be pergola with a ledger board attached to the house and planks run out from that. A couple of 4x4's on the corners. Regards, Mike Keys

    Eric, I'll post that tonight when I get home. I wouldn't mind a critique of it either, since I'm a newbie to this whole "design your dream home" mentality I have.

    No. I want to vault from 9' at the wall to 15' in the middle.

    Best approach for my roof design

    Hello. I'm in the process of designing a home for my wife and I. I have, what I think, is a good floor plan. The house is a basic ranch-style with a nice front porch and a bump out in the back for a four-season room. Ceiling heights are a default of 9' with the exception of the dining room area which has a slightly raised ceiling for a coffered ceiling. I've used the auto roofs tool and I'd say the software got about 40 - 50% of it right. I've been watching videos of manipulating roof planes to get it more where I want, but think I am confusing myself on how to approach this. Right now I am headed to work, but can post the plan later tonight if you want to see the floor plan. Basically, the house will have gables at each end, a gable over the four season room and the a setback gable over the covered front porch. There is also a nested gable over a small bump out from the garage. My main sticking point is that I have a living area where I want to vault the ceiling. Now, I want the ceiling to have a different pitch and I did see a video on how to do this. I guess where I am stuck is if I can just work on the roof based off of the first floor or will I need to add a second floor and build attic walls to raise the roof in the middle of the home, so I can vault the living room. I appreciate your feedback!
