Roofing Layout Issues

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

Intent, Accurately layout my house so I can remodel/design a new second floor.

 

My home is a cape cod story and a half. I am having issues getting the roof to layout correctly. I need to get it accurate for room layout purposes. I have attached a few pictures of the actual house and the current state of my layout. My biggest issue is  the front layout, between the entry roof line and one of the hip line intersections. I am using HD Architectural 2018. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you will post your plan file and additional pictures of the house, I imagine someone will see what they can do.

I was able to get this to work  (with auto build roof)  by adding a 3rd floor.  
1st add the second floor over the entry, but make it shallower, and extend it into the room to the west.  Then build the 3rd floor  (blank plan) over the 2nd floor entry room, and align the walls.  Set the gable wall roof.
Next, lower the ceiling heights of each ENTRY room, beginning with floor 1. Ceiling heights are represented by the colors shown: floor1-green.  floor2-orange. floor3-blue.  attic-gold.
You just need to play with your settings until ALL the roof is correct.  ONLY THEN should you turn off auto build roof, and delete a lot of the unwanted extras, and raise the intended ceiling height.
Don't be tempted to start adding interior walls and other stuff until the entire roof is correct!

I am having an issue setting a floor over just the entry. And when I do a 3rd floor, creating the walls over the entry it won't let me access this room to adjust the ceiling height. Again i appreciate any help.
