Shed roof dormer on tiny house

Recommended Posts

I am trying to add a shed roof dormer to a tiny house my daughter wants me to build for her. Basically, she wants the attic to have a "dormer" on both sides at one end, in the loft area. Shed roof for the dormers will extend from the peak all the way to the wall, and have a 12" overhang.

I have followed the tutorial for auto dormer, and keep getting error "Dormer roof does not meet base roof, probably near the top". And when I look at an ortho pict of the house I do not see the dormer at all, even though on the floor plan it shows up as a gray rectangle.

 

I cannot send a sample plan right now because the PC that has the floorplan on it does not have an internet connection at this time.

Easiest is to do the dormers manually.

 

For Auto Dormers, go to Default Settings and change Dormer defaults so they fit on the roof.
