    Roof layers

    Thank you for posting your question. While roof layers are not available in Home Designer Pro (they are in our Chief Architect Premier version), it does include OSB sheathing for your roof planes automatically. You can change this roof sheathing material to plywood or other material. You will find this material control in the "Build Roof" dialog box in the "Materials" tab. The roof sheathing is also calculated in the Materials List so you have the quantity as well. Kind regards, Derek Chief Architect Sales
