Roof Trouble - Can't Make The Front Look Right - Please help!

Recommended Posts

Hey all, 


I'm working on recreating my house that we're currently building through a builder.  I am having the hardest time getting my roof line right.


Here is how my roof is SUPPOSED to look. 




Here's where I've gotten so far: 




What I can't figure out how to do is that peak. Every time I mess with the rooflines it messes up the entire house.


Anyone have any tips or tricks?  I've also attached my plan for those who are *far* better than I am at this.

You have changed the roof defaults incorrectly.


Consider using typical pitch in inches instead of degrees.


Go to Edit>Reset To Defaults and select Roof Directives in Walls (on All Floors).


Fix your overhangs -- they are not 4", and then set walls to Full Gable where needed.


You will need to post better images of the roof for more help. Maybe a google image showing it from above.

The ones with a gable above them.

Is there a way to separate the wall in the front that I'm not aware of?


You can break the wall with the Wall break tool.


Also read about the Gable/Roof Line tool.


Check out the YouTube roof videos linked below too.


And, I see you have Pro 2020, but ...
