    Thanks Eric for the help. I guess I was over thinking it. Chris

    Help with Roof

    No I haven't. I always use structural ridges, hence why I think the roof over the great room needs to go back to the front wall of the great room, so I can post it down or connect it to the main ridge. The client wants to have the gable as shown, because they want windows up in the gable end. Chris

    Help with Roof

    The problems is I can't figure out how to get the gable roof to go farther back in the Great Room, so all of the great room has the same vaulted ceiling. It looks like I almost need the ridge elevation of the main roof and great room roof to match. Just looking for another set of eyes basically. Chris

    Help with Roof

    All, I am working on a house that the customer wants a vaulted gable roof over the great room. I would like to get this gable roof to span the entire great room if I could, but can't seem to get the roof lines to work. I also don't want a very tall gable wall at the great room. See the below images to what I am talking about. I also attached the plan file for reference. Any suggestions or help will be appreciated. Thank you in advance, Chris Brundage.zip

    New Computer - Macbook Pro

    I just got it on Thursday. I haven't played with Chief on it yet, since I am still sitting it up, but so far I love it. The computer has 2TB storage, 64 gb of Ram, AMD Radeon Pro 5500M 8 GB Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB, 2.4 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9 Chris

    Ryan, I know I will love it. This is my second MacBook. My first one (still runs) has been running for 11 years and all I have done to it was add more ram and larger hard drive. I can't upgrade the OS on it any longer, so I can't put X12 on it. I am a registered Professional Engineer in Pennsylvania and New York. I can also get licenesed in other states as well if I have work there. That is not a problem. The only states that are hard to get licensed is States like California. Chris

    New Computer - Macbook Pro

    Ryan, I actually purchased my new MacBook Pro last night and I am excited to get it. It is funny you mention the Totu Hub, because I actually purchased the Totu dock from Amazon, which allows me to do three monitors. I am going to try and use an apple tv for when my clients are in the office to show them their house on the TV. I will experiment to see how it works. This is the dock that I bought. https://www.amazon.com/TOTU-Upgraded-Universal-Charging-Thunderbolt/dp/B0838WTFD1/ref=sr_1_3?crid=TLVA72PC76QS&dchild=1&keywords=totu+docking+station&qid=1586892787&s=electronics&sprefix=totu+%2Celectronics%2C158&sr=1-3 Chris

    Greg, I don't know if a one second delay would be that bad. If it was more I would probably more concerned. Chris

    Greg, Got ya. I called one of my friends/client and asked him if he any recommendations for docks. He thinks where he works. They use the Targus one I linked above (Targus Docking Station). He is going to let me know. He also give me another idea too. He said on the TV I can put an apple TV on it and cast to from the MacBook for when I have clients here. This eliminates one problem, so I just need to make sure I can do three monitors. After I wrote back to you. I looked at some of the reviews on the OWC docks and they don't seem to get that good of reviews. That is what I am having a hard time with. It seems on all the docks. The reviews are very mixed, which makes it hard chosing. Chris

    Greg, Just been doing some research and it seems like this dock, OWC Thunderbolt 3 along with this, Dual Display Adapter would give me what I am looking for, since OWC dock allows daisy chaining. Is this what you were talking about? Chris

    Greg, I have not. Do you recommend them? I am specifically looking for something that won't bog down Chief Architect in terms of display and graphics. Chris

    Ryan, Thank you for the information. I know Chief will work very well on the MacBook Pro with no problems with the proper hardware on board. I more curious about a decent dock for it when I am working in the office, since it will be my main computer. Like I stated, I want to be able to have the ability to do four monitors. Chris

    Electromen, I am still meeting with my customers during the whole pandemic. It just that I have been doing via video conferencing like Zoom. This way we can proceed with the design and practice social distancing. Thank your for the info on the MacBook. Chris
