Roof design

Recommended Posts

I am new to Home Design Pro and having an issue bringing a roof line out to a vertical post, I am trying to draw a plan for a Garage/Out Building and am trying to have one corner of the building have an open area covered by the continuous roof line, I will use engineered trusses. The foot print is a 20 by 20 structure with the (looking at it from above) Lower right corner open 8x8 I was able to insert a vertical post but cannot get the roof to pull over and attach, I am also looking for a 2 foot overhang. I can then have a carry beam from the post to the building to hold up the truss tails. Any suggestions? THANKS

With Pro, you can easily draw your own roof planes, or modify the auto generated ones.

 

Your cutout needs to be a room. Outline it with walls (invisible, railing etc) to form a room. Change the room type to porch. The roof will then build over this space.

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.
