Separate shed roof over attached deck

Recommended Posts

I have a plan for a square building with a simple gable roof that comes to a peak over the front entrance.  A deck wraps around 2 sides of the building and I want to put a shed roof over the deck on the front of the building.  (Actually, I would like it to wrap around and cover the whole L-shaped deck but that seemed more complicated.) I have been able to define the deck as a room and  checked the option to put a roof over it.  The software just extends the main roof over the decks. I tried following the example in the knowledge base, surrounding my deck with invisible walls and defining the roof characteristic for each wall but nothing I've done has created a separate roof. Can anyone help?   I've attached the plan.

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.

You will need to raise the gable roof way up to get the shed roof under it and allow the auto roof builder to work.

 

Go here for info on doing the shed roof.

That's because the main buildings pitch is set to 3" and the deck roof is set to 1/4" you can change them to what you want.
