    Joey so you just use one file the whole design process?

    Ideas on on how to...

    When I start a new project I name it the customers name followed by todays date. Every day I rename it with a new date. When I eventually send it to the layout on that date it has that file name of that date. My problem is I have to relink the layout with the latest version going forward. Is there a way to automatically do this and is there an automatic way that it populates a "new revision" using a macro? Thanks, Mike

    Dimensions not adding up.

    I've never had that issue before. Thanks for the fix Chris.

    Can anyone tell me when you use the align below on the first floor I get fractions like 15/16"? It should be whole numbers. Thanks, Mike 04082020.plan

    32" dropped garage walls & frost foundation

    I'm glad it's not just me Rob. Michael I opened your file & the garage frost walls need to go down 24" plus the 12" footer. The floor is the only thing that will move down. I'll take Rob's advise & send it to tech support. Thanks,

    32" dropped garage walls & frost foundation

    I've tried guys & come up short. I want the garage concrete floor to be 30" below the subfloor. The concrete floor sits on top of a 24" stem/frost footing. Garage walls being high enough that I can get casing around the man door going into the house. It seems really simple but I can't!!! Lot 13 112519.plan

    32" dropped garage walls & frost foundation

    Wow guys thanks for the detailed explanation. I stepped out of the office & I am looking & considering these options. Quickly looking at this it looks like Steve you did not drop the footer down in the garage 32". This would give me the header room for the garage doors. I never knew or notices the "shelf ceiling". Thanks again!

    32" dropped garage walls & frost foundation

    Joey, I looked through the bdx & I think I have it setup correct. Solver, I inputted the values & it didn't accomplish what I need. If I normally have a garage wall framed at 133 1/8" (121 1/8" + 11 1/4" joist + 3/4" sub floor) to match my first floor walls, I want to lower all of the garage walls 32" below the first floor walls including the 24" stem wall & footer. I realize I would have a girder truss or beam to support the second floor that is above the garage.
  10. I'm trying to drop the garage down 32" so the shed roof will not interfere with windows. When I do that it drags the second floor down with it. When I go back up & raise the second floor back to where it belongs it pulls the garage back up. What am I missing?!?!?!?!? Lot 13 111819.plan

    Two story wall extending down

    I thought I knew how to eliminate the second story wall from protruding into the first floor but I think I have tried checking every box in the structures tab but I can't figure it out. Please help. Thanks, Two Story.pdf

    Layout Templates

    I'm not completely happy with my current layout. I searched the forum to see if there were any layout templates I could download & I couldn't find any. Is there anybody to share what they have or websites that have them? Thanks, Mike
