ROOF - Extend to create back patio overhang

Recommended Posts

Greetings ,
 
Been working hard to figure out how to make the attached floor plan ( floorplan.jpg ) include a " simple uniform A-line Gable roof " with just 4 corners and no layers.

 

Whether I use auto function or manual, I still get these ridges and no roof coverage in back patio or in front of garage. Also tried using the "invisible walls " trick.
 
Can you please provide tip(s) to accomplish a basic roofline that extends over front of garage and over back patio ?
 
Do you need the link to my plan?
 
Thank you

Invisible walls will do it. Just square up the plan, make sure the rooms you create -- the space in front of the garage and the patio have roof over this room checked.

Eric,

 

Thanks. Yes I did try the invisible walls before but no luck. 

 

Sounds like I also need to create "pseudo" rooms for patio and front of garage ? Will work on this next and will update.

 

Appreciate the reply

Yes -- that's what the invisible walls do. The program will only place a roof over a room.

Is this what your trying to do?

 

If so,  extend the bedroom wall and then rename the created room to Porch, Hall etc:

 

Use the Breakwall tool on the garage wall...
