      I think it might have been myself who did the lighthouse many years ago, working along with another user in the US. Nowadays I cannot remember where to start with anything!

      Try using roof planes and change the textures. Maybe draw a very steep standard roof over the foundation walls as the baseline. Then move the roof planes to the opposite foundation walls to create the "leaning out" effect. Then lower the ridge heights to separate and lower the "wall (ridge)" height. The "roof pitch" will probably need to be adjusted. Duplicate on remaining two foundation walls. Join "roof planes" at the "valleys" (corners). I have seen this done with walls in the opposite pitch to build a light house.

      Good luck.

      Hi All


      I have a client who wants to build the rear wall of a house which is not vertical – seriously!

      To try and make it clear – if you were looking at it from the inside it slopes away from you.

      The top is further away from you than the base. Hopefully that is  a clear enough description.


      The question is does anyone know how to draw it in Chief?


      Thanks in advance
