  1. The way I got around it was to create a buffer room with no roof in the middle of the two rooms so that it doesn't try to merge the two roofs together. It still ignores the overhang on the inner wall with the flat roof which is set to 1/4". Is there a better way? Mixed-roof.plan
  2. Hi, I am having trouble creating a simple two room plan where the back room has a gable roof on it and the front room has a flat roof on it. If I just create a simple plan like the one attached I get a flat roof with sloped overhangs that go way out there (see pics). How can I fix this? In the reply I will post one (unsatisfactory) that sort of works but is there something better? Mixed-roof-messed-up.plan
  3. I actually solved it in Home Designer Suite by making a rectangular footprint for the house with virtual rooms (invisible walls but asked for roof over the room). Got this nice result without having to pony up another 300 bucks. There is one oddity in the front. If I put a flat roof on the room just in front of the high gable roof and to the right of the smaller gable roof, the smaller gable roof becomes flat and I can't for the life of me figure out how to fix it.
  4. Hopefully I can clarify - there are only two roof planes over the footprint of the house with a single gable roof line going from the front of the house to the back. I managed to make the following but it was an awful lot of twiddling around with room heights on the second floor and adding fake rooms to get it right. I am wondering if there is a simpler way in Home Designer Suite 2023. Sorry if I am not able to explain this super technically - I am just a homeowner trying to model a home as accurately as I can to see what the remodel will look like.
  5. Hi I am using Home Designer Suite 2023 and am trying to create a home drawing that has an irregular footprint (like most homes) but create a single gable roofline (automatically adjusting wall heights if needed). The automatic roof builder on the other hand wants to make split gable roofs. Is there a way to do this in Suite or do I have to use Arch or Pro and specify roof planes?
