ceilings and roofs

Recommended Posts

I always find roofs/ceilings to be confusing.  Anyway, I am designing finished space in a ceiling. And I need to know what the ceiling heights are at various locations under the slanted roof, for placement of fixtures and furniture.  Any help would be appreciated.

You could measure at any point in an elevation.

 

I sometimes use CAD lines as guides.

Thank you Eric.  That helps. Taking this a step further, here is my elev view and a photo of the unfinished space (it's an attic). I have 2 beams that are not centered with the flat portion of the ceiling, and the slopes take the ceiling to different heights before meeting up with the flat ceiling. To the left of the window, the ceiling will be 76" high and to the right, 84".  Not clear on how to make all my walls/roof lines/ceiling match up to the measurements on my elev image.  Thanks!

You will need the slope of the roof.

 

Draw the 4 walls to define the attic space. Set the ceiling height to be 45". Set the pitch in the build roof dialog and build the roof.

 

Raise the ceiling to 84". That should give you the basic shape.

 

Add in the beams etc as required.
