    As someone who has framed hundreds of homes in the last 35 years, I've probably used trusses on less than 15-20 of those. The primary reason being most were complicated, multi-pitch, cut-up, hip roofs with rooms of varying heights. Yes, I know even those type houses *can* be trussed, but if I were putting it together, I'd charge 5X versus what i would for stick-framing. Most all of the truss homes we've done had rooms with long, clear spans or cathedrals where stick-framing. just wasn't a viable alternative.

    Roof plane and wall height issues

    the baseline on one of your roof planes is about 18" away from the wall. to match the other plane it needs to be moved in to the wall. the issue above your lean-to is an attic wall. pull the shed roof back to meet the wall and it will disappear. also, the second floor wall on the front is misaligned with the wall on the bottom.

    Compass rose on the plans

    i get these fairly often. I either rotate the plan so as front door is facing right or print them to E-size paper.

    stair head clearance

    would be best to post a plan. otherwise, it's just conjecture.

    X12 New Features are listed Here

    i'm not trying to pick on anyone as i'm sure it's just a regional thing, but where i'm from, everyone generally considers a footing to be the bottom part of a foundation and a footer to be a block of text at the bottom of a document.

    Roof generation issues

    Like KBird said...the program is doing just what you "told" it to do. I have no idea what you wanted the roof to look like, but I drew up one version and cleaned a LOT of other things in the plan. CONTI_10_IRIS_12:31:19.plan

      it has a 0/12 pitch on top and 7'8.5" plate line across each side ( I cannot figure this part out) to create the existing roof.

    Circle wall issue

    thanks, Chop. i replaced it with a porch beam and it worked fine. no idea why it wouldn't work with a room divider.

    Circle wall issue

    there is a room divider that is causing your problems. remove it and the odd circle wall disappears.

    The "right way" to build a safe room wall type

    Thanks, David. I tried to duplicate the odd behavior in one of my own plans but was unsuccessful. However, i did discover that eliminating the outermost exterior wall layer on Bob's plan solved the problem.
