  1. I am so sorry to put this here, I am a little desperate and tried the industry resources area and didn't get a response. Thought I would try to see if any of you have had the same problem and the solutions you found. Thinking perhaps Georgia or Alabama truss companies could help, but I am swamped and have limited time to track down ones that can take on more work. Our local truss companies are overwhelmed and turning away work. We must have truss sheets that are windloaded and designed for Florida for the permitting process. Are there any truss companies that have availability and ability to do Florida trusses? It's crazy these days. What used to take me a week to get is now taking 6 weeks just to get a quote,. Any then another four weeks to get the truss sheets. Any help trying to find a solution would be wonderful!

  3. K. tried my hand at this and it seemed to work ok but was cumbersome. Probably just a learning curve I don't have down yet. Isn't there a way to use notepad to create textures? Seems like I used a method like that before. Anyways, I have attached my notes on the method I used to get the modified 4-8 from you had sent me Perry so I could find what I did next time I need it. Thanks a bunch for the guidance you and Eric gave me. Chief Architect - Creating new material pattern for lap siding 4” 8” using 4-4-8.pdf
  4. Perry or anyone else is there a 4" that alternates with 8" calibz file available. Need that this time instead of the 4"4"8" version. Thanks! Is there a video on how to create this available?
  5. Thanks for the solution!
  6. Thanks, both good ideas, but would they get me this look? When I tried it, I couldn't get the first step to curve around to the wall.
  7. Hi All, What are you doing for LED lights that have replaced the recess cans we used to use in houses. Have you found a new symbol or is there a way to change the R to an L in the recess symbol in the library. Thanks!
  8. Hi All, Is there a way to make the starter tread(s) go to just one side only? I am wanting 2 treads that stretch to the right of the staircase. Thanks a bunch!
  9. yes. Haven't checked into x13 yet. Will when I have more time.
  10. There are a few changes that have happened since my windows 10 update. The one that is bothering right now is there used to be a little faint red x that would help you line up walls that were close but not exactly in line with each other. Anyone know how I can get that working again? More later on the other things that are working differently.
  11. Man, all of you are just absolutely awesome!!!!! Thanks so much for taking time to help me on this. After a refreshing weekend and your inspirations I have an idea of which way to go. Hope everyone has a wonderful week!!!!!
  12. Yes I put it on there yesterday. They are primarily giving me landscaping ideas instead of something for the house.
  13. Like that! I have added a belly band as well and that helps. Thanks for getting me thinking again!
  14. All really good ideas that I think will work for the front of the house. They just don't like the side elevations and I am not sure what to do to fix that. I think they would like more lines in it but it is just so odd looking and I am not sure what to do. .
  15. Not sure if this is the right category for this, but I have a remodel that I am trying to come up with a different version for the front elevation. The sides of the house have to look as attractive, as well. I changed the rear of the house to the way they want it. Does anyone see something else that I could do? This is what I have so far. They are open to having the deck closed in above the garage. Only restriction is we can't go past the existing roof eves on the front. Bump outs are fine, as are pergola type treatments. Kind of burned out on it at the moment, so any ideas might get my creativity flowing again. Thanks a bunch!!!
  16. Thanks! This got me what I needed. Always appreciate your great help!!!
  17. I tried your idea. It seemed so promising, but the airgap moved to the exterior acted like a thick wall and interfered with the roofs that I had (see picture) such that I couldn't drag the roof grips over to close the space. It would just revert back to its original position because it thought the airgap was part of the wall. The airgap also put another type of material on my drawing instead of the board and batten. I tried to change the material for the airgap to board and batten, but it didn't work.
  18. Thanks for giving me ideas to look at, but the exterior choice lines the board and batton up with the exterior of the brick. I am trying to have the exterior of the 2x6 wall line up with the exterior of the concrete in the ICF wall, which is what I have been told is the way this wall would need to be built. Any other ideas?
  19. Can anyone help me with how can I get the 6" siding wall to line up with the exterior side of the concrete on the ICF wall?
  20. That looks pretty neat!!!!
  21. Thanks for the insight. I didn't find you video, but I found this one on various shaped cabinets. https://www.chiefarchitect.com/videos/watch/1538/special-shaped-cabinets.html?playlist=87
  22. Oh! (palm slap to forehead) Sometimes I just get too deep in the weeds. Thanks for helping me with this!
  23. Has anyone seen an oval island symbol or can you tell me how to make it? I can't find a way to make the base cabinets with an arc front. Thanks!
