roof asymmetry


Recommended Posts

I am building a garage with stone veneer on all the walls.It has an entry courtyard that is more or less outdoors and will jave stucco walls on it. The center court is 8:12, side garages are 6:12. 

I have defined all the exterior walls as Brick and all the dimensions along the walls seem to be correct. 

When the roof is built, the center of the 8:12 center section roof is off center. 

It looks like it has to do with the intersections of the brick and stucco walls, as they seem to be slightly different. 

I have attached a screen shot that indicates the problem and where I think it might be originating. I have read every roof help tip here and nothing seems to help. Plan file attached too. 

I would greatly appreciate if someone could give me some guidance on how to diagnose and repair this. 

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

The roof planes on the right garage are higher than the left.


The outside walls don't align right to left side -- check your dimensions.


When you draw a layout like this, draw 2 rectangles to form the basic outline, then remove the unneeded walls. This insures everything is aligned.


You have a mix of 4 and 6 inch walls which need to be accounted for.


That roof will easily auto build too.
