Roof Configuration Questions

Recommended Posts

Home Designer Pro 2019

Windows 10 April 2018 Creators Update

 

I have watched virtually every tutorial on roofs.  There's a small area between my two gable roofs that I cannot create (see attached "1_Google Earth..." and "2_Home Designer..." at the circled areas. Also having some difficulty with the roof over the porch connecting to the main roof with gables on the ends.  Any suggestions?

 

Thanks!

John

Since you have Pro, a manual roof will most likely be your solution here. Take some time to learn them, as they can be a lifesaver at times.

I see you said, but this is my generic post for all new to the forum.

 

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.

And I'll agree with Keith -- manual roofs take a bit of practice, but they are one of the main reasons for having pro and very worth learning.

 

Here is a video doing the roof and end of the porch.
