difficult roof

Recommended Posts

I have the rear part of this roof drawn, but I am having problems drawing in the roof over the front porch.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Please post images directly, not a PDF of the image.


 


It also helps to post the plan file. Make sure it's not open in the program.

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.

The rear of this house is to be redone.

The drawing is incomplete but shows some of those changes.

The front will remain unchanged.

My problem is drawing the existing front porch, shown in the photos, especially the roof.

Thanks

I think that your plan file file is too incomplete,  for anyone to offer much in a constructive way.

Here what I came up with.

 

Added a second floor and lowered it.

 

Changed the default pitch to 8   eave overhang to 12

 

Changed the pitch for the Porch and Screen room to 6.

 

Replaced the screen room windows with screens.

Lovely; thanks!

I am trying to figure out how to make the type of roof additions and changes that you made without the AutoRebuildRoof feature changing all the other roofs.

May I ask: With my version (Home Designer Suite 2017) am I able I am trying to make such changes?
Specifically, create or edit each roof area individually?

Thanks!

No, not with Suite, you would have too upgrade to HD Pro to manually edit the roof.

 

Click on the rooms and walls to see what was done.
