    what am i doing wrong

    I made it to wits end trying to figure out how to fix this wall/roof plane issue. I’ve watched and searched the forum & help dir for everything I could to do it right, last resorting here. Ill describe steps taken to where I’m at, the best I can. I saved & attached the plan without all the jazz to shrink the filesize a bit & hopefully someone can show or tell me what I am doing incorrectly! 1. Drew 1st floor, created roof. I have 3 vaulted rooms on the first floor 2. Added derived 2nd floor for bonus room, defined as space attic, set 1.25" ceiling height 3. Created bonus room above garage & set ceiling height to 97 1/8 within the room. Rebuilt roof checking ignore top 2nd floor. 4. At this point my vaulted rooms are not vaulting bc of the 2nd floor’s floor is there but the 2nd issue I will get into hasn’t occurred yet. 5. Defined one of the 2nd floor exterior walls not connected to the bonus room walls “no room definition” 6. When no room def is selected it lets first floor rooms vault, but causes 2 more issues. I saved camera views for both issues I’m referring to. a. issue #1: An attic wall shows up in the great room’s interior b. issue #2: The exterior wall in the master bedroom peels back under the full gable roof plane & I can’t figure out what I have to do to make it right. I’ve tried taking the 2nd floor exterior wall & dragging it over the gap, but the side of the wall shows up inside the next rooms vault. checked and unchecked just about every wall/roof option. if you have time to take a peek at it, please help a brother out Thanks! v3.74.test.plan

    vaulting main floor with 1.5 story/bonus room

    Eric, yes I was referring to the brick wall. I did as you suggested. I see why your name is solver! Thank you very much I appreciate your help!

    vaulting main floor with 1.5 story/bonus room

    woah tough crowd. when I chose no room definition for a 2nd floor wall like solver said, it allowed the room to vault. bingo. great! upon vaulting, the software created these attic walls in the rooms I chose to vault. I was only asking if this is correct or not. by selecting the wall & choosing balloon through ceiling above, made it go away, or normal looking. I was merely asking, if that was the correct option to cure what occurred by choosing no room definition. I think if you opened up my plan & looked at it, you would see I haven't expected the software to tuck me in at night.. the software is great I love it. I'm not suggesting software error, or smacking it at all. I thought this was a Q&A forum to ask experienced users chief related questions. I did not knowingly order the attic wall to appear there, I'm trying to order it to go away, or just ask someone who may easily know, is this wall normal? should it be there, should it be ignored, is balloon thru ceiling the right or wrong medicine, will it kill the structural integrity of the wall, or maybe to just ignore it, making mountains out of moleholes. I appreciate your support. I've learned a great deal by watching both your yt videos & previous roof suggestions & kb is on point.

    vaulting main floor with 1.5 story/bonus room

    bingo! thank you Sir
  8. Happy new year to all! Got a question: Designing a ranch home for my family. Vaulting living room & master suite. added a future bonus room over the garage on derived 2nd story. When unchecking "flat ceiling over the room" box under structure tab in the 1st story rooms to vault, its not removing the 2nd story floor above that room (which I tried setting 2nd story attic ceiling heights to 1.5", 0", & 97.125" ceiling height with no avail) when unchecking "floor under this room" on 2nd fl dialog, it removes all the ceilings on the first floor. What is the correct procedure for accomplishing this? I know it will do it, I feel like I have before-- just having one of those moments zipped & attached the file if anyone cares to advise thank you o7 V3.66.zip

    lock roof ridge height

    David, thank you for the quick reply. that makes sense. I have three different width sections coming together. if I can ask you-- from a building standpoint, is it impractical to build a varying pitch house to achieve an even ridge line elevation?

    lock roof ridge height

    hello, I had no idea there was a forum. this is great! I have one question for any knowledgeable experts out there! is there a way to use auto roof planes & lock all the top heights of the roof ridges so that they all match? I've been working on my house plan for a few months now & have created manual roof planes to do what I am kind of after, but it is a real pia when a wall needs bumped out or something is revised. all the rooms are set to the same height, yet it generates roof planes all over the place [height wise].. I've had better results with baseline polyline manipulation, but still left with the same issue. I want to check a box that says "lock all full gable ridge heights" & let the pitch be the variable. basically I want full gable ridges 1,2&3 to all be the same height and span the main 3 structures of the house. but when I generate auto roofs, its a mess! I also need gable 3 to slope over the porch at a lower pitch and join with gable 1- auto roof bones a hip over porch, if I change the roof group of the octagon nook it gets even wilder! rocking with CA premier x12 thanks in advance!
