Mansard Roof Style

Recommended Posts

I have a Mansard roof but the roof covers the top floor (which there is an attic too)   I can't figure out how to set roof to wrap around both attic and top floor.  Please help!  :)

Could you post a picture of the house you are modeling?


 


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.

Thanks for replying Eric -- I have '14 Essentials but can upgrade if necessary.  I've included a picture of my house and attached garage.

 

Also, I've checked through the help and couldn't get it quite right.  I can't get the roof to wrap around the attic and top floor.  Thanks for your time and help!

I'm not clear on your problem, or the "attic and top floor". Is there attic space contained within the mansard part of the roof?

Sorry for being unclear.  I have a first floor, second floor, and an attic.  The first floor has stone siding (not a problem).  The second floor's siding is actually roof (very steep), and then there is an attic above that is covered with a gentle incline.

Absolutely -- Wouldn't want to waste anyone's time without doing my research.  The issue is in that help the roof sits above the floor.  In my case the roof wraps around the floor.

You don't need to worry about the attic. It's just a space above the ceiling, not something you manually create.

 

Follow this Knowledge Base Article, except build a mansard roof -- the general idea is the same.
