Fix roof heights

Recommended Posts

Ok guys sorry to keep buggin you but I ma so close I do not want to make things worse :blink:

 

I want all my roof heights to be the same.  I tried changing the pitch on the two gables but doesn't seem to change.  I would alos like to be able to fix the porch to have the same "timber" looking trim not a wall.

Make the porch wider, left to right, or raise the porch ceiling height, or change the pitch of the roof on the porch. 

 

There are various ways to get the timber look, depending on which version of HD do you have.

You just need to read/watch videos etc on how to set the pitch in wall specifications.

Relative to Auto or manual roof creation the "Height" or "Plate Height" of roofs per enclosed space (Roof Specification Dialog - Structure Tab - Ceiling Height) is what controls/determines the height of roofs. Pitch is set globally in the "Build Roof Dialog - Pitch" input box but can also be controlled using Auto Roofs command by way of individual "Wall Specification Dialog box - Roof Tab - Pitch over this wall" input box in Architectural. Architectural includes NO manual roof tools so you are stuck with settings as your only method of control over roofs.

g heights set the same.

 

Changing the pitch only alters/changes the angle of the roofs and not their baseline height as above.

 

Your last question requires the use of sloped soffits to emulate an open truss, one can also use the Custom Back splash tool for custom objects but I prefer soffits for that, it is a choice.
