Odd things happening with my roof

Recommended Posts

In the attached plan, the roof at the right-hand side of the house is not behaving.  It is the end of the house with the bedroom and large office.  It is supposed to be a gable end of the building, but it is coming out as a sort of a modified hip roof.  The wall is set up as a gable end properly.  The roof just won't generate correctly though.

 

Anyone have any ideas why this is happening and how I can fix it?

 

I am running Home Designer Suite 18.3.2.2 on OSX.  

 

Any help or ideas will be greatly appreciated.

It must be the basement access. Try pulling it away from the house and see what happens.

Tried pulling that away from the house and it didn't help.  Any other ideas?

Edit>Reset To Defaults

 

Choose all floors and Roof Directives In Walls.

 

You should now have a hip roof.

 

Set the wall to gable and see if it builds correctly.

For some unknown reason, the fence at that corner is causing a problem.  Move that section of the fence slightly, (towards the cellar door) and the gable should build.

Jo_Ann, you found it.  I never thought to check the fence as I could not imagine that it would effect the roof like that.  

 

Thanks for finding it for me.  I really appreciate it!
