I am in the planning stages for building a patio roof extension. The fascia board of the patio has completely rotted away apparently because the builder/seller never installed any roof edge flashing.
Nevertheless, I plan on connecting the extension to the existing patio header, which will allow my the roof of the extension to be underneath accordingly. I need to clear the replacement fascia board, soffit, and so forth therefore I have been carefully plugging everything in to SketchUp (2017), which will hopefully resolve any potential problems down the road.
I ran into problems with the length of the rafter after the bird’s mouth when using Housebuilder. I have a 15 degree roof or a 3.22/12 pitch with a 2x6 rafter. HB will not allow me to adjust the throat cut nor will it allow me to alter the fasica board angle, which needs to be 1’ 1/2", 15 degress, respectively. However, if I switch to a 2x8 rafter, then everything measures out except for the fasica angle, which forces me to modify each rafter individually.
I came across your plugin and downloaded the trial version. Upon first glance, it is quite amazing for the average layman of DIY’ers, such as moi… I noticed, however, that I was unable to input the exact roof pitch; in that, it was restricting me by only offering, for example, 3 or 3.5.
Is this because I downloaded the trial version instead of the pay version?
