    Good Morning

    I am in the process of putting a roof into me drawing. The main roof has no eaves and is 15°. I am looking at putting a verandah around the whole of the house to come in under the guttering to the main roof at 4°. I have drawn a line around the building showing the width of the verandah

    How can this process be done as with Cadsoft build there was a verandah roof option.

    Thank you for any help on this one


    Kind Regards

    You can insert the main roof with the roof by perimeter tool. It will follow the shape of the perimeter walls of the house.

    For the verandah roof, you can use the roof by picking points tool to manually insert.

    You will want all the sides of the roof touching the house walls to be a gable roof shape.

    Then you will want to select the roof>make all the outside arrows green by selecting them

    Right click>properties>support & details tab>change the support height to lower below the main roof
