  1. 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!!!!!
  2. Yes I put it on there yesterday. They are primarily giving me landscaping ideas instead of something for the house.
  3. Like that! I have added a belly band as well and that helps. Thanks for getting me thinking again!
  4. 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. .
  5. 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!!!
  6. Thanks! This got me what I needed. Always appreciate your great help!!!
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. 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?
  10. That looks pretty neat!!!!
  11. 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
  12. Oh! (palm slap to forehead) Sometimes I just get too deep in the weeds. Thanks for helping me with this!
  13. 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!
  14. Very good to know. Michael I was using the single switch when I couldn't get the double and triple to work with the 3 and 4-way. But your information on the dbx helped chopped Saw figure out that that setting was available on the libraries multi gang swiches which will definately help next time. It turns the multi switch into a single switch with the #way assigned. Then i can just manually add more single switches to make the other connections I need work. Thank you both!!!
  15. I am guessing the 2 and 3 way switches available in the library are not "smart" switches as I can't seem to get one of them to become 3 way when I connect two or more separate switches to the same light. I guess I have to go back and replace them with individual switches, which is the way I always have done it, but thought I would try something new. Anyone else get these to work with connections?
  16. Yes, I think you are right, but it still has a different end on it than what I can get my roofs to do. Is it a certain setting that does this type of roof eve?
  17. Eric can you please teach me how you did your eve on the roof over the garage doors. I've set my roof plane to boxed eve but can't get it to look like yours. Thanks!
  18. Good nights sleep and a fresh mind works wonders. The rear porch roof wasn't touching the outside of the upstairs wall. Fixed that and all is good with my CA world.
  19. Hi, I am back again with another issue with this house. This time the ceilings on the open below, and bedrooms 3 and 4 have disappeared. Not sure what I moved/did that caused it. Anyone notice what it could be??? I've attached pictures of how it was, and and what it is like now. I also attached the .plan file. Any ideas on fixing it back like its supposed to be???

  20. Well that is neat. I appreciate you sharing it with me Dianne. BTW you have a great name, but you spell it wrong, lol!
  21. That is exactly what I was looking for! thanks! It does take too long to do the search. It would help if there was a cheat sheet for Simpson or the other manufacturers where we could see which one we were looking for before we go to search.... like a laminated page with pictures of the various doors and their code names. Maybe there is something on line or something the manufacturer can email me. I will check. Thanks again!!! Edit: I found this on their website. It lets you narrow the doors down to whether interior or exterior, glass and how much glass (1/2 or 3/4) and then you get a 20 pages of doors. This door was on page 3 numbered as 77506 Nantucket. https://www.simpsondoor.com/find-a-door/?gclid=Cj0KCQiA7NKBBhDBARIsAHbXCB6pFZ5iAjgv1OAzGCm8gJ2POmR76B30iXP7Ix6vmo2RoS1YnlMeR6saAmKREALw_wcB
  22. Great idea!!! I will use that next time. Thanks!
  23. I thought I looked through all their doors. I will go back and double check. Thanks!
