multiple shed roof design

Recommended Posts

I'm new at this. Trying to design this house with multiple shed roofs and having difficulty. Want center section of roof above the two wings, can't figure out how. And can't get the walls to extend to roof line. Any help would be appreciated.

You need to let us know what software you are using, its exact name and version before anyone can say, with certainty, what you should do. Help us, help you, please. Thank you for sharing a copy of your plan.

Is what you want to do to anything like what is shown in this recent video I made for another Suite User here?

Think I have the full gable, hip with pitch, and high shed walls identified correctly. Must be doing something else wrong. Thank you.

You need to be a LOT more descriptive about the "look" you are trying to achieve.

Thanks. I'll try.

The house (viewing from the front) has a center section, which is 46' wide, with wings projecting forward on both sides. I'd like the roof over the 46' section to be higher than the wings. ( like it is over the porch in attached, but even taller and over the whole 46' )   I've tried wall breaks to no avail. Still trying. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I see you said Suite, but ...

 

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 below for how to turn them on, then 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.

There is lots of good how to info in the links posted just above. 

 

I recommend the 1 hour Home Designer videos on YouTube. Just keep in mind that they show Pro, so things will look different, but your primary goal at first should be to understand how the program works in general.

Ditto what Eric said.
You have not followed the guide rules, and you need to clean up the mess.


You can NOT have a roof eave overhang set at 1/4"!  The roof will not cut off the attic wall.  I'm thinking that this is why your attic walls are invisible?  WRONG WAY!


With that being said, if this is what you are trying to do, my preferred method is this:


Build a second floor (set as "BLANK" in the dialog box that appears) and set the ceiling height  (which sets the roof height) that you want the roof to build above the 1st floor.   Turn ON the floor reference tool, and draw each wall. Then make sure the new walls are "aligned with wall below".  
Set each wall roof tab (gable, high shed gable).  I'm presuming that you also want this "room" set as "open below".

Wow! Thank you for both the well deserved scolding and the recommendations for fixes! I jumped in without really doing my homework, thinking I could trial and error my way through this. Apparently I was wrong. I'll view the suggested help info. THANK YOU!
