Barn Style Home Gambrel Roof with Loft


Recommended Posts

Software: Home Designer Suite 2017

Build: OSX


I have a copy of PDF Plans for a Barn Style House we are planning on building. My wife is a visual person and is having a hard time envisioning what it would look like inside. Since the plans are a bit dated and the architect is retired, I thought I would at least try my hand at a 3d designer in order to give her a feel for the place.


I've been able to create a basic structure with the Gambrel house, though I find it difficult to reconcile the specs in the plan 7/12 and 12/7 for the roof with the way the software works. I've attached a copy of the elevation information in the plans.


The second challenge is using the structure the roof sits as a second floor. All attempts to create that second story ends up creating two floors and the attic.


Not sure if this makes any sense but any help would be appreciated.
