Roof Issue After Changing Ceiling Heights

Recommended Posts

I am having an issue with a roof line.  When I got the ceiling heights as I wanted them I lost the roofline I had.  The red line signifies the original gable on the house.  The overhang above the second story windows should be the eave of the second story roof.  Can someone guide me as to how to get the apparent 3rd story to disappear?

Rooms set as Attic have special properties -- read in Help.

 

Set the 3rd floor attic room to Unspecified and the roof will change.

The key is to turn OFF "Auto Build Roof" command in the "Build Roof" Dialog when you have achieved the roof design you wish. That done, changing the ceiling heights in individual rooms will then have no effect or change your existing roof system.

Thant makes sense to me but I will need to get the roof back before I can do that, or should I go back and lower all the ceilings first then undo auto rebuild roofs?

Thank you for the helpful video, I have it now.  Not only was I missing a step but I also did not set up the ceiling height correctly per your previous instructions because I missed a closet.  I have things looking as imagined now.
