Angled exterior wall for green house


Recommended Posts

I have Home Designer Pro.

 

Is it possible to build an exterior wall at an angle (see red arrow) I am building a winter green house and want the glass side to be angled to capture as much winter sun as possible. Below is a profile of the building.

*** I see you said Pro ***

 

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.

None of the Home Designer / Chief Architect products do sloped walls.

 

What are you trying to do? Build a 3D model, or just develop construction drawings -- or both?

Might be able to draw it as a roof plane and use skylights to get the glass you want and move the framing out of the way? Just a thought, haven't tried it.

Keith gave you the typical workaround. A steep roof plane. You might also look at sloped soffits for both the structure and glass.

 

If you have used, or care to learn SketchUp, you could build a symbol to represent the sloped wall and import just for a visual.

 

You will still need a wall there to define a room.
