Can't get Shed Roof to build correctly

Recommended Posts

I'm working on a remodel of my existing house but I can't seem to get the shed roof to build correctly, it creates a full gable roof. The house has a shed roof in the middle and gable roofs on both sides. The only way I've been able to get this to work is to add a fake short second floor like I saw in a tutorial video that was created to answer a different shed roof question but the issue with that is that it creates a floor over the room when it should have the open beam ceiling on the underside of the shed roof.  See the attached files for a better explanation.

  1. Plan with shed roof issue (Jones220LynchRdExisting2.plan)
  2. Plan with fake second floor to create shed roof (Jones220LynchRdExisting.plan)
  3. Photos of the house showing roof line and interior of room with shed roof.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Did you set the second floor room to Open Below?
