Gable Roof Issue caused by auto attic walls?

Recommended Posts


Greetings.  I am having a roof issue in Home Designer Architectural 2021.  I am simply trying to extend the roof line of the single car garage on the right to meet up with the roof coming from the left side of the two car garage thus forming a gable tying back to the main roof.  The software keeps automatically building attic walls that can't be removed.  I have spent a day and half trying everything I can think of to fix this.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

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.

The walls are not the problem. The roof gets built first, then attic walls are created to fill gaps and will build up to the roof.


Close the software and attach your plan file. Someone might take a look.


If this is an existing house, a picture or two showing the roof would be helpful.
