Garage roof issue

Recommended Posts

I have a simple 2 car garage that is also in the same project with a house.  The house is 2 story with a basement.  The garage is just a single story.  When I try to create the Shed roof with one side slightly higher than the other.  However, the high side wall needs to grow to the height of the roof line which I cannot figure out how to make happen.  I believe this is an issue with the main house having 2 floors but the garage only being one floor it thinks it should NOT raise the first floor height?  See attached rendering.

Just to be sure, drag the roof edge well past the wall manually.

The software should automatically fill in those walls underneath the roof plane unless you have turned off "Auto Rebuild walls, floors, and ceilings" under the "3D" menu or you have turned off "Walls Attic" in "Layer Display Options" dialog for the camera type you are using.

Ah, that check box did it.  I guess if I extend the roof slightly over the side walls, they won't extend to the full height of the 2nd floor of home?

And you can always just go to the 2nd floor and draw in the missing walls.
