  1. Hi Alan, If I am understanding you correctly I think I was able to do what you wanted. Alan.plan
  2. Finally I can say YES! The new grass feature is absolutely incredible. Nice job guys and gals at Chief Architect.
  3. Appreciate the hard work Mike, nice job!
  4. Hi Rob, can you extend the attic gable wall and roof out to meet that ridge?
  5. Thank you Mick and Brett. That will get it done!
  6. Does anyone have a symbol for a Bilco entry like this one?
  7. Change the blank area to a separation Rob
  8. Alan, have you tried the tray ceiling tool for this.
  9. You can select the walls that build over the roof and designate them as (no locate), then turn off the layer for walls, no locate
  10. Absolutely, it is required, From the 2022 CRC R302.5.1 Opening Protection Openings from a private garage directly into a room used for sleeping purposes shall not be permitted. Other openings between the garage and residence shall be equipped with solid wood doors not less than 13/8 inches (35 mm) in thickness, solid or honeycomb-core steel doors not less than 13/8 inches (35 mm) thick, or 20-minute fire-rated doors. Doors shall be self latching and equipped with a self-closing or automatic closing device.
  11. From the IRC commentary regarding this,  It is becoming more common for residential kitchens to resemble commercial kitchens, both aesthetically and functionally. As a result, much larger-capacity range hoods are being installed which aggravates the already existing problem of a lack of adequate makeup air for all exhaust systems in the dwelling. Homes typically suffer multiple ills because of indoor negative pressures caused by an imbalance of exhaust air to makeup air. The problem is that air is being removed from the dwelling faster than air can leak back into the building by infiltration through cracks, gaps and flaws in the thermal envelope/air barrier. The typical home relies solely on infiltration for makeup air, and homes are being built much more airtight than in the past. Compounding this issue is the trend for much larger exhaust fans. The resulting pressure imbalance problem is a very real safety concern.
  12. I don't know why but when I change the structure depth of the offending roof to 7 1/4" it fixes the problem. I don't have time to look any deeper, but I thought this might be a clue for you. Bob
  13. I would think option B is best, but you would have to be sure that the anchor bolt is in the middle third of the sill plate. R403.1.6. Regarding the fire protection for floors, you are correct but only if you label your detail to show a plan reviewer that.
  14. Hi Alan, For the upper exterior walls in climate zone 5 yes. I would have to look in the code if the location for this detail is in another climate zone. The crawl space does not indicate that it is conditioned it shows that it has a vapor barrier only. Therefore, the floor insulation is required. Also, I did not notice that the I joists are not fire protected as is required by R302.1.3
