aysmmetrical gables

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am a nonprofessional and have Home Designer 2014 which I used to design an addition to our home. Program works well, but I can not figure out how to create an asymmetrical gable for a garden shed I want to build. See attached image (Sketchup). Hopefully I am missing something, but HD doesn't seem to allow walls of different heights. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, bob

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 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.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

Roofs build over rooms, and ceiling heights control the low edge of the roof.

 

Draw your exterior walls, and 1 wall under the ridge. make the larger room ceiling height 24" (just a guess), and build the roof.

 

Change ceiling heights, roof pitch as needed.

 

Once the roof is correct, turn off auto rebuild roofs and delete the interior wall.
