top chord bearing floor truss

Recommended Posts

Any suggestions on how to modify a foundation wall to accept a top chord bearing floor truss?  I can not seam to find any information from Chief, knowledge base or forum topics.  I just want 1 foundation wall at the front entry to be higher than the rest and have the top chord bearing trusses.  The other 3 sides of the house can be conventional bottom bearing floor trusses.  Are there any places to set the height of an individual foundation wall higher than the rest of them.  In 3D, I've found I can manually adjust the height of the top of the wall but don't know if this is the only way.  I also have to manually bring up the bottom of the main level wall as well so the siding show correctly.

Did you take a look at Shane's test plan ?

Yes, this is what I need to do but it doesn't say how the foundation wall was increased in height to accept the top chord bearing truss in relation to the other 3 lower height foundation walls.

Shane may have just done it in 3D and used the tab feature to get an accurate height but I am not quite sure.  You would have to send him a PM as he is quite busy but would likely respond as soon as he could.

Jerry is Right, I was just looking at Shane's Plan...... it then leaves all wall height settings as Default.
