exterior gable dormer side wall

Post Posted: 09.01.2008 18:46

Hello everyone, and happy new year,

I am trying to add exterior side walls to a set of gable dormers. The problem is I need these side walls to start on top of the roof SIP panels (where the red lines show in the attachment), but I don't want them in the interior space of the house (where the red crosses show in attachment).

I will design, eventually, the trimmer rafters that will pick up the weight of the exterior side gable walls.

I have tried a number of things, but nothing has worked out so far. Any ideas?

cheers,

Did you try the "dormer wall"? It has other functions than the normal exterior or interior walls. They will adjust on top of a roof instead under the bottom roof side.

Hi Planer,

I did try, but I think perhaps I input the wrong stuff into the function. I am thinking I might need to play a bit with the set-up for the opening and input of dormer walls?

will keep you posted.

thanx,

Hi Planer,

I see now what you meant. I made an exterior wall in the top floor and then right-clicked on properties to change the side wall type to dormer. It worked, but now I am not able to connect the side wall's corner with the dormer gable wall corner.

Also the left side dormer wall in the leftmost dormer is a continuation of the exterior wall from below, broken by the roof SIP panel so i overlapped a dormer wall on top of this exterior wall from below. It works, but I wonder if this is the right way to do it or will I have some unexpected problems later on. Also, I have the same problem connecting the two corners.

When I use the "wall connection options" in the dormer editor it doesn't seem to do anything other than close up the opening in the middle dormer!!

cheers,

Hi jorge,

walls can only connect if they belong to the same floor with the same number.
example: A wall from 'top floor 1' does not connect to a wall from 'top floor 2'

Hi,

that is what I don't understand. I created both exterior walls, and dormer walls in TF1...

In any case, what I have done (again, I don't think it is the proper way, but it works) is separate the side walls from the gable wall, and then adjust them another 5.5" to the building outline. In this fashion I get a crisp corner, though the walls are not united.

Planer, how about the question of how I created the side dormer walls? is that the right procedure? (see my previous post)

Cheers,

Hi jorge,

I think you should attach a zgb file.

In Cologne it's 1:25 a.m. and tomorrow I'm not in office.
I'm sure you will get help from someone else.
