Screened in Porch Auto Roof Correction

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, was hoping to get a little bit of help, I’m working on designing a prospect build for my personal home in Chief, I’m using Home Designer 2021. If I do not add the roof over the rear screened in porch then the rear elevation and gable roofs look correct which is the second photo attached.  However, when finishing the screened porch and adding the roof it then generates the auto roof over the full gables. I located the invisible knee wall that is auto generated on the second floor and pulled that back against the second floor wall thinking it would drag the roof pitch at 2/12 back with it, it doesn’t. I also think that since I’m on Home Designer I don’t have the ability to grab the roof pane itself and manually pull it back against the second floor.  It should ultimately line up right underneath the three windows and should connect between the two separate gables.


thanks in advance for any help

I see you mentioned Home Designer 2021.



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.
