Mixed roof: flat & hip roof in Q&A Posted February 17, 2017 hi David, i didnt think you were being a wise guy. I'll try messing around with the settings mentioned to see if I can get the desired effect. It's been driving me nuts for months how to do this. The roof on large houses like the one I posted, looks terrible if you can't get the flat roof right. It's peaked way too high. The plan I am building is: https://www.architecturaldesigns.com/house-plans/palatial-manor-house-plan-31827dn thanks again, and if you can think of any specific things I should try please share.
