I've been using Live Interior for 3 years and this is my second renovation project. We have just bought a house and I want to get it into LI before we speak to the architect. Apologies if the desciption is confusing but I've tried my best to explain the problem.....images should explain
The house was originally a regular box. However, the ground floor has been extended previously with a flat roof single story extension to the rear. I have build this first with the extension included.
The 1st floor of the house is built into the roof with large dormers to the front and rear.
I cannot get the roof to work properly and need some help! I *think* that I should add a gable roof above the ground floor, pitch it to 45 degrees and add the front and back dormers, and put the rooms in as loft walls. However, if I do this, the roof that is created by LI is way too complicated
The only way I can get the roof to look right is to add a 'dummy' first floor (20cm hight) that contains 4 walls (the outline of the original building) and add the roof onto that. That works with the 2 dormer sections and is how I have created the images below However, that is causing me problems because there is a gap between the 1st floor and the loft and I have the feeling that I should be able to do this just by having a ground floor and a loft.
I am enclosing images of how the house 'should' look, the ground and first floor plans:
how it should look:
Roof if I just add it to the ground floor:
Grateful for any help, thanks!

The latest application update brings up Roof tool which allow you to draw areas (like floor or ceiling) which will represent a roof. And these areas are independent, so you have have mix of types on a single roof.
