    That appears to be more than just a simple roof.

    What do you have to draw exactly? Are you drawing exterior elevations and want to know how the roof will look in each view?

    It wouldn't be a floor plan it would be a roof plan.

    Do you have to show the actual framing?

    I mean I've tried to draw it out but it's completely wrong, just wondering what I need to do to fix it?

    Why do you think it is completely wrong?

    There is definitely something familiar about this whole drawing but I can't put my finger on it. I swear I've seen that house floor plan before.

    And your teacher did not bother to elaborate on that point in any manner? He didn't say specifically what was wrong or suggest where you needed to make changes?

    Do you have all your elevations drawn? What roof pitch(es) are you using?

    Where are you going to school?

    No, he's not in the class 3/4 of the time. We had to copy out the floor plan from a house we found & add the roofplan. I chose this floor plan if you saw it somewhere before http://www.houseplans.com/plan/2334-...e-modern-37989

    What information have you been given to work from, there are a few places I would say need looking at, but how have you got to this point, what instructions have you had?
