To help you learn how to sketch a roof, a video series teaching you how to create a roof with sketches is available on YouTube.

An example of a well made roof sketch that you can use words to describe is this: “A slate roof over the back yard”. In this sentence, there are three parts: the main idea, the description of the idea and the verb (used for the object) lastly, the use of words. The main idea of this sentence is to convey the idea of a simple roof design. The second part conveys the idea of the slate covering the back yard, the third part describes the idea of using words to describe the idea.
The same technique can be used when learning how to sketch a roof with sketches. Sketch a gable roof by starting at the highest point in the roof (usually the highest point where you can clearly see the top) and drawing the roof edge along the gable edge. Note how the roof juts out at different points along the gable edge.
The roof shape editing tool is particularly useful to create a detailed roof shape, as it allows you to change different aspects of the shape without resetting the existing layer. Using the drag and drop feature of the keyboard, start by creating a basic square box. Next, select the drop down menu, choose the shape editing option and click on the ‘angle’ option. The slope arrow needs to be dragged onto the slope line and then dragged in a straight line across the slope.
Create the final shape by dragging the slope line and changing the angle, width, and height until you are satisfied with the end result. When you are happy with your work, click on the arrow button and watch as the changes reflect on the screen. Many people like to experiment with different techniques. You could try drawing a roof using different techniques to see which one works best.
This is just an example of the quick tips and tricks that will help you learn how to sketch a flat roof with gable edges. I hope that this will help you with your next project, or even help you decide if you should switch from a hip roof to a more traditional flat roof. Either way, there is no need to get stuck on the details. Just take a bit of time to get good at sketching gable roofs.
