Need help aligning multiple shed roof planes


Recommended Posts

Hello, I am working on a modern house design with a shed roof. I would like the roof lines of the three sections I have highlighted to be one, large, contiguous plane. Ideally, I would prefer the pink highlighted roof planes to align with the blue highlighted roof plane. I have tried to adjust the heights of the hip walls at the front of the house to compensate, however, this has not worked (likely user error, lol). The roof lines in the back of the house extend to cover the back patio and I would like them at the same height so I can use a single carrying beam along the back of the house (highlighted green). The other beam will be higher by the master bedroom of course (highlighted yellow). What can I do to accomplish my goal please? Thank you for the help!

I see you said Pro 2021.


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.

Draw the roofs manually.


I have some roof videos on my YouTube channel (see my signature), Chief Architect has videos on their YouTube channel and website.


Search my channel for Ravenquills for 2 videos that may help.
