Gambrel roof question

Recommended Posts

Totally new here, so hopefully posting in the right place.

I'm trying to design a tiny house of sorts. I want a gambrel roof and I think I followed the directions in the tutorial but keep getting this crazy outcome. Hoping someone here can steer me straight.

If I need to post other screen shots I can get right on it!

Thanks,

Annette

I have the 2 end walls set to full gable, this is my confusion.

I have tried to attach the file numerous times but it fails.

looking at your DBX pic , you have also set the Gambrel up on the Full Gable Walls  ...  DON'T  :)   

 

ie.....no upper setting on the full gable walls , since you don't want the Dutch hip apparently.

What Mick means, is...

uncheck 'upper pitch' on the gable walls.

 

Open each side wall and set the upper/lower pitch there.

Thanks JoAnn, I will try that. The directions don't say that very clearly, it states to check that box.
