Another Roof Thread

Recommended Posts

Just another newbie with roof layout issues. See photos. I've read numerous help topics, videos, forum threads and I just can not get it right. 

 

Existing Roof. I'm assuming that little drop down over the garage is the culprit. Because when I sampled a L-shaped plan with out the drop down roof, i was easily able to create the gable ends and have the ridge-lines all meet.

Sorry, thought the pictures explained it. I want the original roof line, with a third gable end as pictured, but with out all that mumbled mess at the top.

You want to clean up the area I've circled?

 

Try breaking the wall at the red line. Set the back part to Hip. You should get a roof that follows the blue line.

 

I'd place the break where the new wall joins the old.

Yes sir, that's the area. I did as you said and I'm on the right track. It appears I now need to look into something else. I might have inadvertently inputted the wrong info into roof pitch somewhere.

Made the pitch on the 2 new walls 4 instead of 5.

I thought you said that you wanted the roof ridges to align.

I stated I wanted to keep the original roof line. I didn't want to modify the front half of the garage roof, as that would be a huge hit to the budget. But thank you for taking the time to do that.
