Hello,

I'm having difficulty building a roof on an addition to existing home.  I cant get the new "entry" room roof to match up properly with the "garage" roof.  Any suggestions or guidance would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!

What would you like it to look like?

 

And what about the missing roof?

Hey Eric... thanks for the reply.  I would suspect the addition "entry" room roof ridge would go straight from its gable wall to the garage roof.  You can see in the attached photo that there's an additional section of roof being added somehow (circled in red).   With regards to the main house roof in the previous screen capture... I didn't happen to have the proper "doll house" view.  If you have a moment... maybe you could load the plan file and rotate the camera view.  The issue is much easier to see than to describe.

How about this?

That's a definite option.  My initial thought was I must have created an inner wall incorrectly causing the roof issue... Thinking it through further I realized that it wouldn't be a good idea for water to shed directly towards the main house from the addition roof.  Hence the program is rendering the roof correctly according to the design.  In other words, we wouldn't want a design that didn't include the red section of roof shown below as you depicted.   Just curious how you got the program to design it that way?

Exactly

Manual roofs using Chief Premier. Not sure how you could get Architectural to do it.

I don't think manual design is an option in Architectural... Thank you for spending the time looking at this... much appreciated   I'm not sure if premier designs will open in my version but would you mind sending the first design you mentioned... that's another great possibility!

You could not open them.

 

This auto built so you can do it.

If you like the way this roof looks, then copy the settings exactly as shown.
