Roof Help...Please!

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

 

I'm really struggling to get my roof to look the way I want. For some reason, Home Designer keeps splitting my roof into what appears to be two separate roofs (see attached). I've spent 3 days attempting to reconfigure my roof planes or alter walls. Nothing seems to work.  For reference, I'm fairly new to the software and this is the first house I'm designing on here. Also, the house is somewhat large (50'x80 with garages) and I'm betting that has something to do with the issue. For the build itself, I will be leveraging omnipitch trusses over the upstairs living area (left side of picture 2),  sloping flats for the main house portion (cathedral), and  a series of connecting trusses for the remainder of the house. My local truss dealer assures me they can deliver and that this should be doable. 

 

Thanks

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.

Do all the 2nd floor rooms have Roof Over This Room checked?

Sorry about the signature thing. Didn't know. 

 

I've double checked and all rooms have "roof above" checked

The simple answer is manual roofs, but if you will attach the plan file (close Pro first), I'll take a look.

 My first guess is the window placement below the two intersecting walls. I can't tell from the angle but it might have some bearing on the issue. It looks as though it might be above the top plate of the wall. Just a guess but as Eric said the Manual Roof Plane might work too.

You have created a Roof Baseline Polyline.

 

Go to Edit>Delete Objects and delete it, then build the roof.

My goodness. I don't even know what that is. :)

 

3 days of frustration and you fixed it in 1 minute. Thanks a bunch!

Have you considered working with a professional -- an Architect or talented designer?
