Simple Design - How to make different height walls with same gable ends

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm brand new to Home Designer (Suite 2016). I'm trying to build a very simple , tiny house,  that is 16 x 24 ft.  with the 24ft. walls having 2 different heights .  One wall would be 10'  the other wall would be 14' with, both with  gable ends. The 10' wall roof would be longer than the 14' wall if you can picture that hopefully .

Also,  my plan is to create a nice Loft area for sleeping at the 8' level at one end of the design.

I just can't seem to find anything in the program that let's me build these 2 different height walls that are gabled .

Thanks for any help here,

Padge

Hey Kat....     how about  EXACTLY like that !!!

 

I'm game...   how did you do that..  I do see the , maybe, the room divider  or   maybe an invisible wall ?

My interest is also what the framing looks like..    I'll try what you have shown and see what it looks like

framing wise also.... 

The next step is that  Loft I want to put at the  8' level on one end.

 

Thanks much,

Padge

I believe that by adding an invisible wall divider you can select each side separately and in the structure dialog set the ceiling heights that you want.

Thanks everyone..  I managed to get the same  Look that Kat created.

 

Now I need to get a LOFT created at one end of this tiny house beginning at the 8' level with open ceiling, all the

way to the roof apex... basically,  no ceiling ?

Consider adding a 2nd floor. Use 2 rooms, one for the loft, one for the remainder of the area -- set this one to Open Below.
