Odd roof style - not really a cathedral but almost

Recommended Posts

I am attempting to do an "as-is" drawing of an odd shaped building I'm re-designing for a client.  It is one floor but one side of the building has 2 wall heights of 10' and on the other two it's 16' high with the ceiling vaulting up from the lower to the higher.

 

I have looked at the Salt Box option but I don't have a 2nd floor and from what I can tell, the only way to change the wall height is to change the ceiling height, but since I don't have a ceiling, that doesn't work either.

 

I'm new to the CA Interiors program and I think I maybe attempting a more advanced roof type so any help or suggestion is appreciated.

 

I've attached a picture that shows the 2 heights coming together  post-13359-0-29133300-1473977555_thumb.jpg

 

Thank you,

Tami

Tami,

 

Even though you don't have a ceiling in the room, the wall height is still controlled by the ceiling height.

Raise the ceiling height and the walls and roof will raise (auto or rebuild roofs).

Thank you Glenn - I tried that, but since one side of the room is shorter wall height it doesn't end up looking right.

Can do that with a normal cathedral, just looks odd because the one wall is 45.

Wow, Glenn has probably given you some good advice, this guy has never been wrong except when he suggested I order the halibut instead of the sea bass.

Post your plan if you want an answer you can use......... I can't believe he recommended the halibut in lieu of sea bass.

Thank you.... I must not have done it correctly then (I'm very new and this is probably not the best first project, but I'm determined).  I'll see if I can figure out how to post it - thank you again!

 

I would probably go with the halibut too, so there you go :)

Here is how to attach things. Make sure the plan is not open in Chief.

And here is a simple plan.

      I successfully imported the floor plan for a house from a dwg file, however I have not found a way to convert the roof drawing into 3D. Is there a way to do that? I am using the X11 version.

      I have created a number of different wall types to show proper dimensions (i.e. when one side of the wall is 5/8" Type X and the other side is 1/2" drywall) as well as to calculate the correct material counts and to show the proper information in the schedules.  Unfortunately doing that seems to have a down side...it changes the framing as if they were separate walls instead of the same wall with different materials on them.  I have seen the following side effects (colors refer to screenshots below):
       
      (Green Arrow) In unfinished rooms such as an attic storage space which only has a subfloor but no drywall, the walls get pushed up into the rafters by what appears to be 3". (Red Arrows) The floor joists and top/bottom plates are cut in the middle when they should be continuous pieces of wood.  In addition, you can see that the walls which are produced are not boxed at the end...the top & bottom plates stick out at the end. (Purple Arrow) Parts of the gable wall are not created.  In this case you could argue that it is not needed, but if a builder makes a wall he is not going to leave a hole in it. (Blue Arrows) An extra stud is added to a room that has no drywall, and therefore doesn't need nailer studs.  In addition, it looks like the other stud needed as a nailer for the finished room in the middle is missing from the plan view of the framing (see 2nd screenshot).  
      Am I doing this all wrong (creating separate wall types), or is there a way to use them and fix (any of) the issues I mentioned?
       
      Thanks in advance for any help!
       
      PS - I am a little surprised that the wall finish is not part of the room settings (like the floor & ceiling already are)...that would allow you to have continuous walls and still have different materials in each room (i.e. greenboard in the bath, 5/8" type X in a garage, unfinished in an attic, etc.

      We're trying to figure out how to change the angle of pendent lights on vaulted ceilings. When we create the ceiling angle, the lights follow and aren't angled properly. How do we change the lights so they go vertical rather than at a tilt?

      Hi,
      I am using Chief Architect X8 on a Mac.
      I am having trouble with roof planes - I want to be able to change the baseline height but it keeps defaulting back and won't alter.
      Yet when I open the same file on another computer I can change it
      Any suggestions?
       
      Thanks

      Hello, I’m needing help lowering the roof. I’m trying to make a 50x80x16 shop with the pitch lower than the default gable height. I’m new to this and I’m hoping this software will help build our dreams on our farm. I want the look of the attached photo with the front being the 80 ft side.
