Modeling an "Offset Gable" Roof from 1st Floor up to 2nd Floor


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm brand new to the forums and to using Chief Architect. I'm currently using Home Designer Pro 2022.


What I'm trying to do is model a roof where the front starts at the 1st floor and then goes up to the second floor peak but then the back side just slopes back down to the 2nd floor. It's kind of hard to explain but in the attached image you will see better what I'm trying to achieve. Thank you all in advance!

*** I see you said Pro 2022 ***


And please refer to Home Designer and not Chief Architect -- helps remove a bit of potential confusion.


I noticed you also asked on the Facebook group. Please keep in mind the people responding are not your private group of helpers and it's rather annoying to spend time answering an already answered question.





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.






Many questions have been asked and answered. The Home Designer website is a good place to start your search.


Here is a video about searching the forum:

The built in Help System (always a good place to start)

Thanks guys for tips and suggestions. I really appreciate it! 


@solver I apologize for any annoyance. I will take your suggestions. I'm very new so just looking to learn. I did not realize that there was a big overlap between the forums and Facebook group. Thanks for sharing the resources.
