Addition with Shed roof Problems

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I have been scouring for an answer to this problem but so far all the porch, roof and other tutorials/answers haven't covered it.

 

I am trying to add a rear addition to a cape cod which has a fully bumped out shed dormer on the second story. So far it freaks out when I try to setup the first floor addition as upper/lower pitched shed roof. Seems that when there is a dormer in the roof the auto roof from the addition doesn't like butting into it.

 

If anyone has an idea or suggestion, I am all ears. Thanks in advance!

I have completed a You Tube video of "fixing" your plan in Suite 2017 and in Pro 2017 so you can clearly the limitations of Suite. I am sorry but it is what it is.

David, that took entirely too long to respond, ha, jk! Thanks so much for the explanation and it makes perfect sense. I assumed that the version limitation was what I was running into as this is a semi complicated roof/siding junction.

 

I do one home remodel for myself or flip about every 5 years, so I use Home Designer fairly infrequently. I think if I totaled my bill rate for the time spent messing with Home Designer version problems, I could have already bought Pro so I think that might be coming down the line.

 

thanks again for the quick response
