OOPS ! I am using Home Designer Suite 2017 Build


Not quite solver. I created an exact replica of my house, copied the file and then added an extention to the side.


The origional house should have one long ridge from end to end. the two side gables should be of equal size and either the same hight or below the long ridge.


Hope that helps and thanks for the reply.

What about the original roof -- hip or gables? 


The pitch for the side facing gables is 26.599197° or 501mm.


I just noticed you posted in Tips&Techniques, which is where people share tips and techniques.


How about starting a new thread in Q&A -- you ask a question and hopefully someone provides an answer.

Sorry, I don't really understand the threads and I clicked Quote, not sure what it does !! So happyh you have created the answer, I have been weeks on it.


The origional roof is gables.


I am trying so hard to do what you have done but I get a hole in the side of the house. or a huge triangular roof if I close the gap.


Is there any chance you can upload the file you have edited ?


Thanks in advance
