Roof Build Problem: Ridge beam affected by 2nd story ceiling height

Recommended Posts

I've got a single story roof on one part of a house being affected by a second story ceiling height in a different (adjacent) section of the house.  Setting the 2nd story ceiling height to 50" or less, yields a good looking 1st floor roof as expected.  However, when I increase the 2nd story ceiling height above 50" its as if the roof ridge beam of the 1st story section wants to follow the same height

 

Can anyone suggest how to resolve this issue?

 

Thanks,

The south horizontal wall of the deck is causing a problem for some reason.

Move it slightly to the north and the roof will build correctly.

Jo_Ann... that's brilliant!  It works... this has been driving me crazy all day.  How did you find that?

Thank you so much.

In addition to what Jo_Ann suggested, all the 2nd floor walls were not aligned, There was no need to use "Open Below" on the foundation, you create

a room on the 1st floor and make that room "Open Below".
