Weird Roof

Hi All,

Wondering if anyone can look at this file and tell me what has gone wrong with my roof?

I created a second storey that I want to sit low (a la Frank Lloyd Wright), but the program created all these weird roof lines, and lowered ceiling.  There will only be living space over part of the house.  My walls disappeared, and I can't get the roofline to work properly.

Not sure what's going on.

Thanks

Please, with Home Designer turned off, attach a copy of your plan along  with your intended ceiling heights for the first and second floors, then someone can advise you as to what to do.

Wrong settings always obtain wrong results.

Thanks David.  

My main floor has 9' celings, and the second floor will have 7' celings.  Right now I have them set to 6' only because I was attempting to get a visual for the client.  We may need to still play around with the roof, but right now I need to start with the concept.

Please post images directly -- no need to make a PDF of an image. This makes it easier for others as an image shows in the forum.

You will need to convey what is properly.

How can you give a visual with short ceilings? Always use correct dimensions from the start -- works better than trying to "fix" things later.

Fixed it by deleting the floor and re-building.  But the reason I had floor set to 6' is because we haven't decided on half storey or full storey, so I was trying to show them the difference in design.  Most likely will go with half storey, as the neighbourhood is mostly bungalows, with a few half storeys thrown in.
