I'm struggling with the roof on this Mission Bungalow.  As you can see the roof does not fill back to the window the way I envision it.  I have also struggled to make the front overhanging wall work out correctly for the design documentation. It also causes issues with the porch roof since a roof hole in the lower dutch gable cuts through the upper overhang if I pull it in any further.   Any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated.

 

As always, thanks in advance for your help!

Given the complexity of the roof, you may want to send your drawings to tech support and we can take a closer look for you.

Nice design. It certainly adds layers of complication for roofs. Then you could adjust the upper overhang to make up for the difference.

 

Did you try moving the reference balloon to the inner (window wall) of the gable? Did you try something with two different roofs (a hip at the lower level and the gable up above on the upper level possibly)?

Sorry I didn't respond sooner to my own question but I figured it out with a little trial and error.  The second option in the lollipop tab for dutch gable is distance and once I realized that by increasing that number it allowed the roof to back fill to the wall.  I have attached a finished drawing with it worked out.  This is my personal house so I haven't been able to devote as much time as I would have liked.
