Dormer Gap Solution

Recommended Posts

Solution for those nasty gaps that dormers leave in the wall where they intersect the main roof plane.

 

This information was provided to me by CA Tech Support.

 

Under Home Designer Core Catalog a folder resides named "Shapes"; under this folder another folder exist named "Wedges".  Pick the "Wedge (inverted)" item and insert into your plan near the dormer gap.  Using the plan view and the Full Camera image resize the wedge and locate it in the gap; adjust size and location until it blends into the existing walls and ceiling.

Maybe someone who is proficient in CA can generate an YouTube video for this procedure.

 

Again, thanks to Tech Support for this solution.  Also, they are aware of this bug and are working to fix it.

Attached is an image which shows a dormer with the gap problem (same as above).  I fixed the gap with the inverted wedge technique and cleaned-up the corner using a "box" shape.
