Version 2: Create an Overhang Roof Section

To create a covered patio or lanai, draw a roof overhang with two house shapes.

In the House Stage, drawing a roof overhang is similar to drawing a roof with multiple roof elevations or drawing a vaulted ceiling on a screened patio.

Start by drawing the House and turning the Roof Off:

Roof Off


Then, draw a second house shape that includes the overhang area. For this new shape, keep the Roof On:

Second House


  • Shape #1 will be the Roof Only
  • Shape #2 will create the House Walls

Shape 1 Roof Only
