Can I Make This Roof?

Recommended Posts

There is a funny little roof over my entry, and I have no idea if I can replicate it in Home Designer Architectural 2017, and if so, how.

Note that I don't have the apex of the gable centered over the door, and I don't have that little swoop on the right side.

 

Is it possible? How?

 

Many thanks!

You would need Pro to do a curved roof, but you may get the basic shape by adding a wall (room divider) to the right of the door creating a small room.

 

Lower the ceiling in that room and see how the roof changes.

 

And thanks for filling out your signature!

Thanks!  I already have a closet on that side, so that was a very quick fix.

I thought I would need Pro for the curved roof, so no big disappointment.

 

Appreciate your help.

You can also enhance/ tweak that roof by setting an upper/lower pitch on the east wall. Then manually add the roof returns using library shapes.
