building a dormer that's just for looks

Recommended Posts

How would you build a dormer (over a garage) that's just for looks. I want to build on top of roof framing/sheathing.

If your software has a "Dormer Tool" (Build - Roof - Dormer) set its default settings so the resulting dormer will then fit where you want it and then place the object using the "Dormer Tool".

Not all Home Deisgner Software is created equal, what do you have?

I have HD pro 2015. How do you prevent the dormer tool from cutting a hole in the roof at the point of placement?

Place the dormer (Auto Floating Dormer). 

 

Explode the dormer -- select the dormer, right click, explode dormer.

 

Select the roof hole and delete it.
