Bonus Room Wall
SoftPlan Version:

I'm doing an upstairs bonus room. Is it better to have the exterior wall as a wall-fit-to-roof or have the gable end serve as the wall? It needs to have a window and gable vent and I can't see how to add the vent on a wall.

You can add a vent as either an opening or by adding it to a roof edge.

If you are extending the gable wall all the way to the roof then you can add the vent just like you would add any other opening. See the first image below.

If you want to use the Gable End Provided By Roof then you can edit the roof gable and select Gable Vent to add the vent. See the second image below.
