Drawing Roof Plans


Recommended Posts



I am totally new to HomeDesigner Pro and have a hard time drawing the roof of the home.


It has the following:


1. Double gable at the front of the home

2. Front porch with a hip roof. 

3. Side stairway tower with a Gable Roof

4. The rear of the home would be a hip which extends over the rear screen porch.

I am struggling with completing this roof over the stair tower.   Right wall of stair tower is designated as Hip Wall but shows a gable.   


When manually altering main roof it deletes the front porch hip roof. 


Also, have a hard time with intersection into main roof.  


How do you draw columns manually?
