    Odd Dormer Problem

    Hello, I am trying to put dormers in my house model, and it keeps doing this weird thing. i use the "Automatic Floating Dormer" tool, and i place it where i want it, but then when i look at it in the 3D view, it's all wonky. The window sits way up high, and i can see the roof layers beneath it!! when i move the window down, i see the plywood and stuff through it here are screen shots:

    Well....i want to lower the window just a little bit....and keep the dormer itself the way it was before i "created room" in the dormer....there will be a window seat below that window.

    Well.... it opened up the ceiling and the floor, so now i can look up into the attic and down to the first floor

    it says that the Dormer is selected. i select the dormer, and then the "Dormer Specification" box comes up. then i click "Walls" and i type in a different number into the "Height" box and it just makes the window a different size and doesn't allow me to move the window up. when i just put it the dormer, it allows me to move the window higher, past the ceiling, but not when i make the wall smaller than 60" (the default height).

    ....when i try to adjust the height, it just shortens or lengthens the window.....

    How do I get shiplap?

    I am wondering how to get ship-lap (or at least a mimic) onto a wall. I've tried to use the spray paint tool with selected flooring, but the "ship-lap" is going the wrong way. is there a special catalog i can download? or maybe some settings i can change to give me the desired look?
