Line up roof planes & ridge

Recommended Posts

Doing an addition to existing house. I am trying to line up-raise the garage addition with the house.

So the roof & ridge of existing house line up.

I have to stay 4' back from front of house.

 

Any ideas?

I am using Home Designer Suite 2017.

 

Thanks, JoelNewton Garage.plan

1) Please fill out your Signature -- see below. I see you are using Suite, but adding this info to your signature keeps people like me from hunting for it.

Line up how? Do you want them at the same height?

It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left. Doing so makes it always available, and this info is often key to providing a good suggestion

Draw wall in garage aligned with house ridge as shown.

 

Raise ceiling in the room with the garage door to 139 1/2".

 

Turn off Auto Rebuild Roof. Delete wall, reset ceiling height as required.
