Dormer construction

Recommended Posts

I  have added a large shed dormer on a 1 1/2 story house but I don't want the eave of the house running across the front of the dormer. I need a flush wall from foundation to second floor eave.

I'm using Home Designer Architect 2020.

Don't use a dormer. Create a room and raise the ceiling.

This is a timely subject for what I am trying to do with exterior of my plan. I have been trying for several days now how to do this, so this was quite informative. The spin I am trying to put on this involves all walls being on the same plane. Hoping that you can shed some additional light on the my version. Attached is a plan that I played with after watching your video. Also included are a couple images of the barn style apartment I am trying to design. Both sides of this home would ideally have a covered storage/porch. The steeper pitch would be 8 and the other would be 5 or 6.

 

Thanks for any help that may be given....Greg

Best to start a new thread. It's confusing to everyone when different problems are being discussed, and the OP will continue to be notified about things unrelated to their question.
