Roof For Detached Garage

Recommended Posts

Hello, is there a way for me to build a roof for a detached garage without ruining or changing the roof I already have built for the house?  I am using Home Designer Architectural 2017.

 

Thank You,

Robert

Provided your pre settings are correct you should not loose the house roof when adding a garage unless of course the garage is attached to the house which then alter the overall design. If you were to provide a copy of your plan file and perhaps a sketch or description of the garage's roof, then something specific could then be offered as useful help.

Hey David!

 

I attached the current home plan.  For the garage roof, I'm looking to just have a gabled roof.  Every time, I go to build a roof, it changes the roof of the entire house. 

 

Regards,

Rob

Was your plan modified in some other version -- Pro or Chief?

Just rebuilding the roof on the house -- garage has No Roof checked, completely changes the roof. 

 

Don't understand how this can be, since with Architectural, you must use the programs built in roof function.

I figured it out.  I selected the porch/deck room and checked roof over this room and then used the build roof feature and it worked like a charm.  Got it just the way I like it now.

 

Regards,

Rob
