Building a Deck over a Garage

Recommended Posts

I'm in the process of re-creating my friend's house though am having trouble replacing the roof over her garage with a flat deck. I know there must be a way though everything I've tried so far has failed.

Any help much appreciated.

Remove the roofs, draw the deck over the garage and then build the roofs again.

Thanks. I tried removing the roof from the garage alone though then I couldn't work out how to draw the deck over it. The railings kept appearing at ground level.

Yes LawB10. Though how do I create a second floor over the garage alone without it effecting the rest of the house? I did try though it messed-up my other levels (as this is a three split house) and roof lines.

Okay, I worked it out (somewhat) though now I have this issue (see attached image). The roof line is completely wrong and no longer closes.

Upload the plan.

 

If you want the balcony covered, check the roof and ceiling box.

Thanks. I'm actually trying to achieve something like this (attached). A partial pergola over the balcony which is attached to the existing roof or fascia. The main problem I have is the roof over the adjoining room is supposed to be angled down towards the balcony (as per the example pic) though is currently pitching vertically.

This is the best I can do. Sorry for my ignorance. I generally use HD for interior schemes so exteriors are a bit of a mystery to me.
