scott65 Posted June 11, 2015 Share Posted June 11, 2015 I've been messing with this for hours, I'm pulling my hair out. And its probably so simple. First off, I'm a first time user, so I'm sorry for the ignorance, I've tried to find this on my own but so far I've failed. I'm using the Suite level, hopefully thats not my problem here: I'm remodeling a house. For the purposes of this problem, lets just assume its a rectangle, with a plain ole 4 sided hip roof. Now, on one end of this house, there are gables on each side, one slope of each gable matching the slope of the "end hip". So as your looking up at the roof from the ground, at the skinny end of the house, you see a big flat roof surface with a bit of triangular surface above it where the main ridge is a couple feet taller than the two side gables. Sorry, this makes sense in my head but maybe no one else's. Ok, within one of these gables is a bay window of sorts. I'm not familiar enough so I should specify. This isn't some purchased unit nailed into the wall. Its basically 3 walls with windows, all the way down to the foundation, with its own shingled roof on the surface of the gable. I can not, for the life of me recreate this monstrosity. I would tell you what all I have tried and failed, but it would take me all night. Lets just say I've tried everything except the correct way. I've ended up with no roof, gaping holes in the roof, 2 gables on each side of the bay, the bay countersunk itself into the wall, etc, etc. I've exploited every glitch in Chief's software I believe. Just now I thought I FINALLY had it, by just deleting my "walls" and putting in the pre-made bay window. But then I re-built the foundation. Now the roof of the bay is literally on the ground... I'm not sure if its because I'm doing the bay wrong, putting it too close to the corner of the house, or maybe even made the gables the wrong way... The gable on the other side of the house is going to eventually contain a chimney, I can't wait to tackle that feat... Yikes. Can anyone possibly give me some kind of hint here? Does any of this sound familiar? Or maybe you can just tell me I have to have roof editing features that only come with Pro, and I'll just stop trying, but at least I'll know. Here's the plan, if I attach it correctly. Again, I'm using Suite. 2016 Old.plan Edit: I realize now I made a long rambling post with a bunch of useless details. Sorry, I wasn't originally thinking of posting the plan, just trying to describe the situation. But I'll leave the description in case any of it helps. Thanks!
