Roof Trusses - Attic Walls

Recommended Posts

I have a general question regarding roof trusses and attic walls.  


If I choose to raise the roof plane then an attic wall is created.  Automatically this wall is a copy of the wall below, typically it will have drywall on it...which is not needed in the attic.  So...I create a new "attic wall" type...without the drywall.  However, if I will be using roof trusses with an "energy heel"...what happens to this "attic wall"?  


As you can see from the framing perspective view...the attic wall does not show....except at the gable ends.  (I have attic walls turned on).  Does the use of "roof trusses" override the attic wall?  I'm wondering if the materials for the attic wall are still being calculated.  Also...the attic wall does appear in the cross section view.  


Needless to's a bit confusing.

      Hey All,
      Please help me to create roof over a floor without walls but with only beam/pillars. I want it to be open terrace but covered from above.

      I have a soffit that just wants to be angled. I auto created the roofs and this happened. So I deleted that part and made my own - same thing. So I mirrored the rear roof at 45 into place - same thing. I have included the plan - anyone know why this is happening or how to fix it?

      Is there a quick way to do this roofline? I tried putting another level above but its not working. I've done this years ago but can't get it now

      Hello, I am trying to put together a floating deck on top of a roof patio. As soon as I draw the deck it cut a hole in the roof slab. How can I achieve to show the deck?

      can anyone explain how and help me enclose between this new gable roof and ceiling. Also looking toward house thru gable closing in with Hardi-siding. The old roof is showing thru and something else when I do a rendering (see attached). Need to look good for a client in 3 D. They are adding a roof over existing 10' x 20' patio. 
      thank you if you can help.
