extending a gable roof


Recommended Posts

It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click My Settings, then Signature on the left.


There are some really good videos on YouTube and there is the Knowledge Base with how to on many issues.


We also need to understand what "extend a gable roof" is. 


Is Roof Over This Room checked for the deck or porch?

Select the railing that is parallel to the house, and make that a gable wall. Voila, gable porch! I just did this on a plan I'm working on right now.

I did this in HDA 2015. Good luck!

As Sue pointed out if its a Porch the Roof will build auto if your move the railing out , Decks don't have Roofs by default, so you will need to turn Roofs back on in the Deck Room's DBX (dialog Box) on the Structure tab for it to show up after moving the Railing
