Hole in the wall at roofline


Recommended Posts

I am having a problem that I have run into a number of times so I expect others have as well but cannot find a post with and answer. I have two roof systems coming together and holes appear in the wall side. Common thread is the hole is above a non-exterior wall. This model has two examples.


Thanks for your input.

Happens to me all the time, and is always frustrating to fix. To provide the best solution, we need to know more about your plan, but here are a couple of ideas.


In all cases, try to get the walls set as needed, then build the roof. 


Roof Cuts Wall at Bottom. This lets you have a wall on top of the roof, and no wall below.


Lower Wall Type if Split by Butting Roof. Adds a different type of wall below -- say, an interior wall.


Roof planes need to split the wall, not butt against it.




The roof plane often needs to be modified as shown here where I moved part of it back.




You could also add 2nd floor. The raised gable in front could have a second floor as the raised part. It all depends on what the inside needs to look like.
