uneven gables

Recommended Posts

I am working with Home Designer Pro 10.

 

I have been working on a house plan and have struggled with the roof planes. The house is a basic H shape. In the center section of the house, one side has a porch, making it wider than the other side. I have used a pitch of 3 on the wider side and 4 on the more narrow side. The gable ends are 10 pitch.  The front porch is a 3 pitch with a gable section above the porch section. The gable ends (from the legs of the 'H') are not symmetrical. The 'inside' of the gables are higher in elevation than the 'outside'. The center line of these same roof sections does not bisect the house section.  These are auto generated. The different colors of the siding help to visualize the alignment problem. 

House dimensions:
45'x16'

30'x18'

45'x16'

 

The first picture is of the side of the house with the side porch in the center of the pic and the front porch on the left side of the pic.  The second pic is from above with the front porch at the bottom of the pic and the side porch at the right of the pic. 

 

Help? How do I make the bottom of the roof lines line up and the center line actually be in the center of the building?

 

Thanks,

Jill

I see you said Pro 10, but ...

 

Answers often depend on what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see mine for an example) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

The simple answer is to draw manual roof planes that are correct.

 

Is this a model of an existing house?

 

I'll have a look if you will post the plan file. Make sure Pro is closed before attaching.

To fix your roof, make this setting.

I'll suggest you use the same pitch on both sides of the center section. I raised it to 4-3/4. The gable roof over the porch is 6-3/4.
