Gable roof with prow

Recommended Posts

I cannot get Home Designer Suite 2015 to draw my gable roof correctly. We have a prow on the front of the design and the program keeps drawing the gable incorrectly.   The gable starts correctly on the outside walls but then dips back down at the center of the prow, creating two gables instead of one. How can i correct this? post-3400-0-72076700-1435509445_thumb.jpg

Posting an image of what you are trying to model will help us.

Solver, he did post an image (see above). I did try to create a prow roof myself in Home Designer Suite 2015 and was not able to. It may be possible to do but I could not do it. It is easily done in Home Designer Pro or Chief Architect Premier. Perhaps someone else might find a workable answer but I could not. You can only mark those walls Full gable or High Shed Gable at a time but the latter gets the effect you want.

Did you mark the walls of the Prow Full Gable , instead of High Shed/Full Gable ? been a while since I did one but I think that was the trick

Mick is right, you have to mark the two prow walls-roof tab "High Shed Gable" and it then works like a charme!
