Roof on basement doghouse exit

Recommended Posts

I've added a doghouse style exit for the basement, but HD is not allowing me to add a roof over it.  I want a gable roof to match the other roof lines.  See screen clip.

You have Home Designer Pro, so the thing to do, if you require a roof, is to manually draw one. Get over the notion that the software does things for you. The truth is you use its tools to acquire the results you need and want.

I added two roof planes - seems labor intensive - are there shortcuts for sizing/overhangs etc?

 

Now a roof but also a hole where there should be a gabel end. See photo.  I specified full gabel wall in dialogue box.  How do I get Chief to put in this wall?

If that is a room, and Roof Over This Room is checked, you should get a roof if Auto Build Roofs is on.

do you have the Display of Attic Walls turned off ?  cos if you have a room and a roof it should auto build , perhaps you just can't see it?
