Exterior wall issues

Recommended Posts

I'm having trouble getting my first floor walls connecting correctly with the second floor walls.  I have all these crazy lines and can't seem to get them to connect.  I know this plan is still a mess but the walls are my current struggle.  Thanks for any input....

Thanks Shane!  I'm struggling with the corners meeting under my dormers? If I pull that attic wall over it won't connects.

Also on the side with the double gable porch.  If you select the exterior wall and zoom in, there are all these crazy points that don't meet.  No matter what I do I can't clean them up.  Is it something in my wall setting or maybe because of the roof?  I have been banging my head trying to clean up that one little area.

Just looked at the plan ShaneK posted.

 

Set your walls to default top and bottom heights, and fix the roof planes.

......Set your walls to default top and bottom heights.......

 

 

Why do you guys mess around with this?  Listen to the solver,  do not adjust the bottom and top of walls unless you know what you are doing.  I rarely rarely rarely ever need to adjust the bottom or tops of  the walls.  Do not do it.  CA is very good about self adjusting wall heights.

 

Seriously,  think about why you are manually changing the default top and bottom heights and then don't do it.

Scott,  Tell us what you really think.  BTW, I am in total agreement with you. ;)

May also want to define the log walls with multiple layers. Gaps at the top of walls are caused by the program building the floor platform to the exterior of the wall.
