I have a garage at the side of my model and want to add a pitched lean to roof. I try to add a roof using Revit but I don't see an option to add a lean to where the timbers are attached to the side of the house and slope down to a wall plate on the garage.

Any ideas on how I can achieve this?

Thank you.

Just in case anybody wants to dee what I'm describing as a lean to roof, here is a picture. The roof just slopes from one side only. How can I do this in Revit as I don't see it in any tutorials etc.

Thanks

Well, it's so simple, you have several ways to do that but the simple way is create a roof by footprint and in sketch mode draw a rectangle but put only one face with "Define Slope", the others clean the Define slope...

Thank you also to coreed for that video.

Now that I have my lean to roof, I am left with a gap where the brickwork needs to be built up the pike (pitch at side of roof)

How do I get this section filled up with my brickwork? Is there a simple technique to do this?

Many thanks

Kirk

Guys, oddly enough, when I did my model again and added my roof, the brickwork that I wanted filled was automatcally added for me. Earlier on for some reason it was omitted.

Anyway, just in case you were curious I have attached a test screenshot of what I was ranting on about. It is the brickwork between the top of the slope and the head of the garage door that I was trying to achieve but it seems fine now.

Cheers

Kirk

Ohh, that's was because Revit ask you if you want the walls attached to the roof, so next time to solve that pick in the walls and in the option bar pick in attach, then you have top and bottom, select top and pick in the roof....
