Extend Roof Slope on Bumpout-Ande1314 Architectural Designer 2018

Recommended Posts

I am working on renovating a current property.  I cannot get the roof to draw up correctly in the software.  In the photograph the roof over the five windows is a continuation of the roof over the entire wing of the house.  In my software I get a separate roof jut out over the five windows.  How do I make the roof do what I need it to do?

See if this gets you started.

I have tried that and it does smooth out the roof, but I do not want the T shape.  I would like it to be one long line... Any other ideas?

You can make the bumpout a room, then uncheck Roof Over This Room.

 

You will need to fill in the missing ceiling with something like a soffit.

When I tried the previous solution, the unroofed part looks funny...I lose the gutter etc...

 

I have tried also going into the wall  specification area, and under roof extending the overhang to 48"  on the sides beside the bumpout, but that does nothing...

Make sure you change the overhang on all the walls.

I have all of the overhangs on the wall with the 5 windows at 48".  I am including the two walls that run parallel and the two that are perpendicular...and it still looks the same...

Start a new plan, just one room with a bumpout. Set the 2 end walls of the main space to gable.

 

Change the overhang setting in the walls I've shown above.

 

Build the roof and see how it works.

 

My guess is after trying various settings, some need to be cleared and then reset.

So I made invisible rooms in the alcoves to the right and left of the bumpout.  Then the roof just smoothly went over them!
