1. standard area calculation Standard Area calculation problem ignoring space between open below room

If that is a living area generated polyline the excluded areas are holes made from polylines & can be edited. They may take a bit of tabbing to actually select them but then you can break 2 times & pull the polyline over that wall as desired to get the total you want. Not sure that is what you are looking for.
2. Calculations related to Schedule Total

I have a schedule for impervious Area on a site plan. Is there any way to use a formula from the schedule total? Something like this: TotalArea / LotArea = [Percent_Of_Impervious] .round(2).to_s + "%"
3. Cabinet Doors with Key Locks

Is there a way to add key locks on cabinet doors? Medical office wants the locks shown.
4. Looking for a thin AC CU for a pool bath?

I'm going to push them in this direction. Doesn't look bad on the roof. IMO
5. Looking for a thin AC CU for a pool bath?

Clever solution John. Thanks
6. Looking for a thin AC CU for a pool bath?

Thanks John, that unit requires a 14" deep CU which is not shown. The RV units look promising. Thanks Shayne, hadn't thought of that approach. Will check it out. Thanks
7. Looking for a thin AC CU for a pool bath?

I have a situation where the client wants a small AC unit for the Cabana toilet room. The issue is the Cabana is very close to the property line. Anything within 3 feet of the property line needs to be one hour fire rated. And they don;t allow equipment in the 3 feet. The side is set back to 3'-6" & I could push it a bit more. Maybe to 4', so I need a very shallow condensing unit. They don't want it on the roof because you can see it from the 3rd floor. It can't be on the South side ether.

10. Confusion with Code interpretation for "Curved" winders vs Spiral

Your walk line is at 2'-5". If you measure the tread at 12" out front the inner radius the tread will be less than 10". That's my best guess. I'm nut sure Chief is preventing this due to code.
11. Chief for a new user?

So true but he likes sketch up. True that is a subscription. I found someone with Chief skills to step in if needed
12. Chief for a new user?

I'm going on a 15 day vacation and the Architect I produce plans for is concerned that a plan issue may come up while I'm away. I have uploaded all the relevant folders to my DropBox & given him access. But all he can do is modify pdf & he works in Sketch-up. So I thought he may start a trial version for \$200 if he actually needed to modify the files. I don't have a lap top so that is not an option. If the trial version is X16 he could download the plan & layout file to do modifications don't you think? What do you think?
13. All in one washer/dryer wanted

Those are STACKED washer & Dryer. The Combo W&D are somewhat new. You use the front load to wash & then it turns into a dryer. https://www.amazon.com/Techomey-Ventless-Capacity-Compact-Apartments/dp/B0CBBKBZBJ/ref=asc_df_B0CBBKBZBJ?tag=bingshoppinga-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=79989661103547&hvnetw=o&hvqmt=e&hvbmt=be&hvdev=c&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=&hvtargid=pla-4583589125706749&psc=1&msclkid=9e6cd31563fd15240924b55b643e7970

15. Are you required to state all the geographic and environmental design criteria on plans

I just had a plan rejected because it did not list all the codes. This is commercial but residential is almost as bad. No seismic here.
