Dormers

Recommended Posts

How do you create a dormer with no side walls?  I want it to look like an eyebrow dormer, but with a gable front facing wall and the roof lines come down and tie into the main roof.  The dormer would also be stepped back from the main wall by about a foot or so. I'm trying to make look like this photo of this home plan. See photo.

 

I'm using HD Pro.  

Thanks

That's not a dormer, it's just a gable, and is created like any other gable. 

 

Just assign the wall below it as a gable wall.

 

Here is a similar roof on a plan I was testing some ideas on recently.

After you have made that wall a full gable wall,  open the wall spec box.  Under the roof tab there should be a place to choose 'full roof return'.   You can also set the depth that it extends out from the wall.
