Attached carport with skill ion or flat roof

Recommended Posts

Djp if you are active today

I watched one of you YouTube tutorials on carports, it was the double stand alone carport.

I am doing a standard house design with hipped roof. Off the side of t he house will be an attached single carport with near flat roof.

If I create it as a porch it creates a hipped roof to match the house.

If I change the roof pitch to 0 it makes the entire house with a flat roof.

I thought maybe creating a slab for the floor and roof and some millwork as posts.

The knowledge base also mentioned invisible walls but this doesn't fix the flat roof scenario

Ideas ?

Thanking you

Sean

Go to the Library and take a peek at Exteriors>Structures

 

If that's not what you want try this:  Lower the ceiling height for the Carport, click each wall (3) and lower the pitch to 1/4"

Set the pitch for the house in the build roof dialog, then set the pitch for the carport in one of its walls. Pitch set via a wall will override the default pitch.

 

With Pro, you have the ability to draw manual roof planes too.

The point of auto roof generation, especially in Pro is to take what it produces and then MANUALLY edit the results to precisely what you want. Just take the next steps and learn manual roof editing.
