Window Rough Opening - Home Designer Pro 2018

Recommended Posts

I have created windows in my floor plan.  I set the window width to 24".  This is usually a stock width for the windows I use, but I want to make sure that Home Designer Pro 2018 is quoting the rough opening and is not setting the window size framed width to 24".  How do I check or set that when I set a window to be 24" wide it framing the rough opening to 24"?

Thanks, Solver- appreciate the reply.  I did check the framing, but not sure if the 1/2" (D) allowance is incorporated into the window size or not.  So when I set the window width to 24" W is that the rough opening, as most windows are quoted in rough opening at Home Depot.

      Is there a way to do a cedar lintel above your windows? I am not having any luck. I am going to attach a picture of a house to show what I am trying to achieve. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. I am still fairly new to Chief and I am trying to learn as much as I can.

      is it possible to create windows with drywall returns and a wood sill.  When I create a window I choose these options.
      1. no interior casing
      2. use interior sill , cap #1, inset 3" extend 0, no apron, no wrap
      3. uncheck, "has frame"
       
      the sill disappears into the drywall return at the base of the window.  
       
      pictures below,
      untitled 1 is an image from my chief of a window I was working on,
      picture of window with sill is a quick google images search of drywall return with wood sill.  My customer wants something like that without the dog-ears and the extension.

      Hi, I am a Revit user converting to Chief. 
      When working with angled walls in Chief, I have not been able to lock a wall from moving when changing dimensions on connecting walls. 
      I am familiar with how to use the directional tools to move an end of an object to adjust its dimensions.
      When angled walls are off-angle, I can waste significant time adjusting the lengths of the angled walls and still not achieve the dimensions I need for all connecting walls.
       
      The use case scenario is when I am drafting a plan using dimensions provided to me to create the build.  
      Of course, if I was creating a plan from scratch, I could probably avoid this situation.  
       
      Any suggestions?

      Open to new work. I've been working remotely for clients for years and can easily navigate the issues that present themselves from remote work. I have plenty of references and videos demonstrating my various services. The following images are snippets from my site at www.RabbittDesign.net
       

      I offer training-while-drafting services in Chief Architect as well as training in Sketchup, Thea Render, Photoshop, Premiere Pro and Procreate.
      I tend to cater to experienced designers and drafters in Chief Architect, many of which benefit from and are quite pleased with anno/layer sets, library items, toolbars, and a more cohesive folder structure and .plan and .layout files. 
      A few hours of my service may cut hours off of every project you have going forward.
      Feel free to check out my YouTube channel dedicated to all things drafting, designing, modeling and rendering in my signature below.

      Does anyone know ho fix issues I have on this commercial remodeling addition?
      1) Windows and bar cabinets are not against the wall!
      2) wall is not showing on full camera looking back toward where it attaches to the existing building. Wall existing is brick on inside, unless I decide to cover it with gypsum bd!
      3) I have a 10 ft. plate with 9 ft dropped ceiling 2 ft x 4 ft acoustic tile in new addition.
