Hello,

I need the small gable to be open all the way through to the house but I need the gable to the right of it to run into the small gable as shown. 

Does this make sense? can anyone help?

 

Thank you!

It's about the sequence you apply the roof(s). And hopefully I understood the question.

 

Others will have their method, but this is mine.  I built the walls with the front and rear wall opening in line, then the beams > ran the roof  east and west > put a roof on the small front gable and then applied a REVERSE GABLE to the main roof > adjusted it and slid it right to left so that it blended into the small front gable on its left side.

 

Hope it helped.  It takes time to learn the workarounds and one day ...it almost makes sense.

I want the small gable to be vaulted all the way through to the house.

I think you will need to trace the 2 roofs together, apply the gables and then on the small gable uncheck "Gable created by roof".  You will also have to edit the beam that the gable is sitting on and uncheck "Extract in model".  That's the down and dirty version.  If that doesn't give you what you're looking for then you will need to use a wall instead of a beam for under the small gable and put an angled opening in the wall to match what you are wanting it to look like.  Hope this gets you pointed in the right direction.  I am not very good at explaining these things.

Have you tried adding a vaulted ceiling under the small gable roof?
