Off-set roof peak

Recommended Posts

I am trying to draw a gabled roof where the peak is off center to the building but have been unable to even come close to a solution thus far. I would like consistent pitches but for one eave wall to be higher than the other pushing the peak off center. I know how to change ceiling height of a room but see no where to change a specific wall height. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

your on the right track with needing to raise the ceiling height in one of the rooms

you cant change wall height independently and have roof build like that in this program

it all comes down to the maths

see below - roof pitch same on both sides but the ceiling height in left room is taller than right

You can also create a manual roof plane, open it, and set the baseline height to whatever you need. The height of the wall under the roof plane will adjust to suit the baseline setting.

Thanks Gratepunkin.

   The room separation and individual ceiling height was the solution. You saved a lot of time for me!
