"False" Gable trim

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am working on an addition where the front roof over the garage is a 12/12 pitch & the back is a 5/12 or so. I am trying to figure out how I can get a piece of trim that mimics the same pitch as the front to give the appearance of a gable. What I have drawn was by using rectangles, yet it doesn't put anything on the 3d views.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you

If I understand correctly , you don't need sloped soffits , what you need is a Skirt Roof that is an exact copy of the Front roof ,

and that is your method , since you have Pro it is fairly easily done ,to give the impression of a Dormer.

 

- copy in place the front Roof plane ,

- spin it 180°

- slide it back over rear 1/2 of garage until overhang is correct.

- now cut the hole in the new roof plane around the Wall line of the Garage

      (so you have a big 'U' or 'C' basically depending on orientation) ,

        this will allow the garage walls to rebuilt up thru the roof again

 

- Adjust and fiddle as necessary to get it to display nicely in 3D

 

something like this:

I think the soffit may work. I tried yesterday real quick. It's basically just needing a piece of 1x trim to go along the back wall at the same angle as the front. The roof on the back is the full length of the garage, so there is no protrusion through the roof.Thank you for the replies.
