Help with roof

Recommended Posts

How do I draw a roof line like the one in this picture? I can never seem to get the second roof angle right (overhang).

Not enough information from you to comment other than to say that your answer depends upon what software you are using, and its version number. each Home Designer version contains several different titles and each of those has different tools and capabilities. Relative to roofs, the largest divide is between Home Designer Pro and all the rest. What you have will determine your answer here.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               DJP

Thank you for your help. 

I have Home Designer Architectural 2018. Build 19.3.0.49x64

 

I'm working on several horse barn designs and have difficulty with roof pitches for the overhang/ porch area.

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.

One of your posted images appears to be close to correct. With Architectural you have only pre-settings to guide the roof generator to an outcome. Relative to the intended dormers in your posted image (first post) you will need to preset your Dormer Defaults so as to be a little smaller than the ones in your image, Dormer objects must fit into the perimeter of its host roof plane and cannot go over the host roof planes edges. After you get one in place you can edit it to emulate the dimensions of the actual dormer then copy paste the second one. Being new to how the dormer objects work, it may well take you a while to get them in place, just do not give up and stay at it.
