Recommended Posts

I have read how to create a single storey flat roofed home with parapet walls.  A big there in Australia is hipped roofs with parapet walls across the front façade or just over a Portico (effectively a raised porch). Has anyone worked a way for this to be done in 2016 version? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

What does the roof look like behind the parapet?

 

Do you want just the look, or do you need plans to build from?

 

Have you tried to do this yourself? How far did you get?

 

 

 

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.

Hi Eric. Have added a bit of info as requested. Want to do working drawings for builders, approval from relevant authorities (here in Australia that is Councils generally or certifiers).  The parapet walls have a "boxed" gutter that is directly behind them so when the water runs down the roof it runs into the gutter(s) which in turn have rainheads (pipes from gutter down to ground level and then into the sites's stormwater system.  Hope this helps a bit.
