Creating a Manual Floating Dormer

Recommended Posts

I have a garage roof that is shaped like a barn and am trying to create a floating dormer that extends from the peak to the outside wall. I find that the auto floating dormer will not work when there are two roof pitches (as in the barn shaped roof). I have created a roof plane that extends from the peak to the outside wall by creating invisible walls inside and defining the wall height. The only problem that I have is that the sides of the dormer are not filled in (you can see to the outside). If I made a normal dormer (not floating) then I could fill it in but I want the floating dormer to maximise the space in the room. Is there a way to fill in the sides?

 

I am running Home Designer Pro V15.
