Shop roof help

Recommended Posts

Hello, I’m needing help lowering the roof. I’m trying to make a 50x80x16 shop with the pitch lower than the default gable height. I’m new to this and I’m hoping this software will help build our dreams on our farm. I want the look of the attached photo with the front being the 80 ft side.

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

Open the Build Roof dialog and review the settings.

 

See the Roof Styles panel (left side of build roof dialog) for more info.

 

Good hour long getting started webinars on YouTube -- see the links I posted above.

I’ve gone over the YouTube videos and every time I’ve tried to put a gabel roof the pitch/ridge is too tall. I’ve tried creating the half wall up the the 16’ height but it won’t let me add the doors/garage doors more correct the roof.

Can you post a screen capture showing a perspective?

Have you changed the pitch?
