I was following Blender Guru's Abandoned House tutorial. At 2:45 of the video/ my project I had to shrink/fatten the house up because of some mesh problems as instructed in the video. I was doing that but the problem was that the house became bloated and bendy. how do i not get it to bend and bloat?

bloated house

This is because he probably missed one important information... This happens if you do shrink/flatten by default: enter image description here

I don't see him checking one value in tutorial... you have to check Offset Even: enter image description here

After this it should work as intended (also I don't know if you did but use Ctrl+A and select Scale in Object mode before shrink/flatten

If anyone else comes across this seeking the answer - Shft-d to duplicate The roof parts prior to seperating them, when you alt-s the house after boolean, after clicking look at the left corner, activate offset even then select the roof parts of the house model and gz them into place :)
