    Roof question

    I'm assuming this is easy but still new to Chief.
    How do I put exterior walls where there actually are none in order to fill in this open gap?

    And is there a technical term for those walls? Thanks!

    What you want there is an Attic Wall. You can have these be built automatically by going to Defaults/Wall/General and check Autobuild Attic Walls

    This only seems to build the attic walls above existing exterior walls, like ones with gables.
    But this area as shown does not have any wall below it at all. It isn't generating an automatic attic wall....

    Precisely correct observation, so you so what Bryce suggests in such cases,
