    Add gable roof perpendicular to 2-level gable roof

    Hello all! Using Home Designer 6

    I have a house that has 2 gable roofs, running along the same plane, but at different levels.

    I want to add a room on the back and use a gable roof that is perpendicular to the existing roofs.

    Drawing is attached and here is a link to the exported photo:

    here's a better one with the smaller room:

    The part that is shown with a roof is the existing structure.

    The part I want to add the roof to is the flat structure in the front.
    I actually don't want it that wide, but want to move the left wall to the right to about the midpoint of the house.

    Like I said, I'd like to run the gable perpendicular to the existing gable line so require minimal restructuring. Any thought on how to show it?

    I'm not very savy and I had to use an exterior wall inside the plan to get the roof to show the different elevations. I made the ceiling on the left side 150" to gain the height.

    Thanks for all input!

    Edited to add, everytime I try and add the roof in the meager way I know how, the software rearranges the entire roof into something quite atrocious.

    Hello Kirby,
    Welcome to to the forum. I think I understand what you are trying to achieve. In the following pictures the I have "red G's". These are the walls that need to be Full Gable walls. In the 3rd picture there is a "blue X" which indicates where a "wall break" needs to be made. The wall below the "blue X" should not have Full Gable selected.

    For future visits to the forum it will be very helpful to all of us if you would enter the Name of your BH&G product and the Version in your Signature.
