Trying to make foundation walls same size near attached garage

Recommended Posts

In the attached images, I am trying to get a uniform height in the foundation walls where the garage attaches to the house.  The wall section in question defaults to the garage structural detail.

 

Any comments would  be welcome.

Drag the taller wall around so it replaces the shorter one.

Yes I tried that, it goes back to being the shorter wall.

The shortcut is to drag the wall top up.

because you have manually played with the foundation and auto rebuild is off you will need to do as Eric and Shane suggested and break the wall and do it manually.

Hmm, I have tried that but no joy.  If you have done it, can post the file so I can see it?

Shane posted a plan above.

 

What the problem -- that is, what's not working for you?

When I break the wall, and then try to drag it up, all of the garage walls go up with it.

I did it in this view. Break the wall, select it and pull it up.

 

Might be more accurate in an elevation.

      OK guys, Kerry Francis of Garage Door Wizard fame emailed me over the weekend and said that he does not plan on improving the program because the demand does warrant the work required. 
       
      However, he is allowing me to sell Version 2.10.0025 of the program that works on with Chief Architect Premier X9 and Windows 10. To keep the cost and trouble down, I will sell the program for Kerry on the honor system. You send me $20 via PayPal to CVRE@sbcglobal.net and I will forward you the program via email. No sharing, warranty, no returns, no crying, no whining. Please let the rest of us know if it works or not on your computer setup by posting on this thread so others can decide whether to buy. 
       
      Upgrades are $20 also since there is no way to monitor registered users. Kerry said that the price back in the day was $35. So it is a good deal. Kerry was nice enough to allow me to distribute this because some of us asked for it. I am just trying to contribute to you guys and gals on the forum who have helped me by participating on the forum.
       
      Regards,
      Charles

      I've looked for a thread on this topic but cannot find one.  Typical construction is CMU stem wall on footing and slab.
       
      I would like to show outside edge of foundation block and all thickened slab areas (for bearing walls and posts).  I see the foundation block on floor "0" and the thickened slab (under bearing walls) and post footings on floor "1".  I would like to display all this on one layout and add dimensions for concrete, plumbing, and other under-slab work.
       
      What is the best way to do this without redrawing a separate plan to accommodate these items?

      Is there a room dialog to prevent this from happening? Ideally I want to make the cantilever a "cantilever" room and have it not generate walls under the cantilever with auto rebuild foundation walls on. Unless there is an easier way? Copying the balcony room settings ends up generating walls like the attached picture, still generating walls under cantilever. Feel like I'm missing something very simple.

      I'm not sure when this happened or how it happened but my ceiling isn't meeting the wall in the basement.  The separation is from the garage.  I created a brand new plan to make sure my heights all matched up correctly and they do.  Can you tell by looking at my screenshots what might be happening or what I need to do to fix it?  Photo on the left is the wall/ceiling in the basement.  The photo on the right is from the garage.
       
      Thanks so much!
