How to change this roof pitch independently from my main roof?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I'm using Home Designer Suite 2018. As you can see in the attached photos, I have this secondary porch roof that also extends over a room in the house that juts out beside the porch. Right now both my main roof and this secondary roof are 5 in 12 pitch, which is fine for the main roof, but I need this secondary one to be more like 3 in 12 so that it will stop clipping my windows on top as you can see in the pictures. I can also attach my floorplan file too if that helps (not just screenshots, but the actual floorplan file itself). But if go to the 2nd level and click on the side walls and change the roof pitch from 5" to 3" - nothing happens. It doesn't actually change. So I'm thinking there is some small detail I need to change in the plan file so that it will accept the changes appropriately, maybe?

 

Thank you.

Open the front wall of the porch. See the Roof settings.

 

And ...

 

I see you said Suite 2018 -- but 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.

Ah, got it. Thanks, that fixed the issue. I can't believe I overlooked the front wall. I was only looking at the side walls. And yes, thank you, I added that bit to my signature now.
