Gable End Blending into Hip Structure


Recommended Posts

 I have not been able to emulate how this gable blends or seems to "disappear" into the hip structure.  I really like this look and would appreciate any help in achieving this design for my plan.  I particularly like how the hip structure appears to bump-out to form the roof return of the gable. 

 

The structure I'm trying to emulate:

The picture of my plan that's was modified and posted:

Someone on Chief Talk accomplished this, posted a picture of it, but didn't give any insight into how they did it.  

 

Thanks Everyone!

Manual roof planes.

Thanks, that's great info.  I appreciate knowing how easily this can be done.  Hopefully, someone will see this and be able to provide some useful information.

What would you like to see?

 

Turn off auto rebuild roofs and use the manual roof tools to reshape and/or add new roof planes as needed.

 

Videos available on manual roofs via a search on the Home Designer website. See links below and my YouTube channel (link in my signature) for more info.

How did you get this portion to join up?

 

I did it manually. 

 

Using Auto Roofs, the garage roof fascia needs to be the same height as the house roof fascia.

 

I would build a foundation too -- and turn on Auto Rebuild Foundation.

Eric, thanks a lot.  That helps.
