Issues with front porch/double gable roof


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I'm hoping someone will be able to help me fix this issue. The front section of the home I am designing has a double gable roof, with one of the gables being an open porch. When i remove the ceiling from the porch, the wall from the adjacent gable pokes through. 


I'm working with Home Designer Architect 2018.


Any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated!

Work-around for HD Architect:


On the 2d attic level, withdraw the protruding part of the attic wall (showing into the porch).

On level 1 porch, place a soffit.  Open the soffit and lower it's height, then check box "sloped soffit" and "place under roof (or ceiling)."

The sloped soffit is finicky, so you will probably have to rotate it, then drag it down to the correct ceiling level.


Then, in a 3d active window:

Draw a custom backsplash in the missing attic wall area.

Re-shape the backsplash to fit the angles that are needed, using the edit handles and polyline breaks. Add your wall material.
