Deck Shed Roof Changing Pitch of Main Roof


Recommended Posts

Hello all.  Really hoping someone can point me in the right direction.  I am using Home Designer Suite 2019


I am having an issue while adding a shed roof over a deck with a pitch of 4/12 and it automatically changes the pitch of the upper roof to 4/12 from of 8/12.  I started with changing the right railing to full gable in the plan below and the left railing is still set to hip.  As a result the right side of the shed roof is properly extended to the upper roof with the proper pitches as shown in the iso.

When I change the left railing however to full gable the main front of the roof matches the pitch of the porch shed.  See iso's below.

I have spent numerous hours today troubleshooting on my own while reading multiple threads and watching a few videos but I could not find anything specific to my issue.  I am really hoping someone can help me with this.  Hopefully I've given clear enough info but please let me know if anything additional is needed.


Thanks in advance!

Oh man I am so frustrated.  I set the upper pitch per the following for the left and right front railings and got the following result.  I feel like I am so close but can't figure out why the main roof raises now.
