Gambrel Roof Height

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I need some advice on how to specify the height of the gambrel roof.  It needs to be 24'H at the peak but I have 2 floors as you can see in the picture.  I don't need full height walls in the loft area.  I've tried to reduce the wall height of the 2nd floor (loft and "open below" area) to something like 36" H thinking it would drop the overall roof height, but all it does is add more height to an "attic" wall.  Can anyone help?  THank you!  I'm using home designer pro 2018 on a Mac book Pro.

Were I you, I would create an elevation camera and then measure from the bottom of your building to the target max height using dimension tools. Then you can measure using that dimension to see if your virtual building is too high or low and then adjust the roof plane heights using the "Transform-Replicate" tool to attain the target ridge height.
