2-story fireplace

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a good way to create a 2 story fireplace?


I've been struggling with this for a couple of days now, and have tried multiple options but haven't been able to create anything I was satisfied with yet.  I've got a family room that is open to the room above, and I want to create a fireplace which extends to the ceiling of the room above.  The closest I came to a working solution was defining the fireplace chase as a room and changing the height of the ceiling there, but that also causes another (exterior, unconnected) wall in the living room to change ceiling heights, screwing up door and window placements on that wall, and I'm sure more problems to be uncovered down the road. 


My plan is attached. 

I'm using X9 on windows 10 64 bit.

Draw 4 walls on the 2nd floor to continue the chase. Copy the 1st floor walls, go to 2nd floor, Paste Hold Position.


Make it Open Below and delete the floor structure.

      I'm looking to make my retaing wall larger than the terrain heights.
      In the instructions in this page,
      I did all the steps, but the last point. In section/elevation, when I try to click the retaining walls, nothing happens. I don't get boxes or any selection at all.
      What is happening that I can't make this selection?
      I want to make my wall 6" above the grade/terrain elevation, and I want to drop the foundation of the wall by 24". How do I do this?
      Please assist.
      Thank you.

      Happy Holidays everyone.
      I have a plan where I have a few places I need an exterior wall above a roof section, but a railing, or in one case, no wall below.  Is there a way to do this in Chief Architect X11?  The one opening in my screen shot shows some exterior molding, but no wall.  On the one that has the railing below it, I tried the lower wall type if split by roof, but I couldn't get it to show as a wall above and a railing below.  It was either only a railing or all wall.
      I am on a macbook pro..

      Hi all. I'm fairly new to the software and have only been using it since October. I have a client who wants a wood framed chimney extruding from the middle of the roof up from the gas fireplace. I've tried a bunch of different options to make this work but can't figure it out. Can someone please tell me how to draw walls on top of the roof?
      Thank you!

      Anybody have any idea whats going on with the intersections of these deck railings and the exterior walls? Cant get the original default siding to go away at the intersection. Have tried editing default material and making adjustments with the wall layer extents tool.
