siding stops short of roof

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

any simple answer to why my siding stops short of the roof?  Is it a setting the the structure tab of the roof dbx?  The siding is stopping at the ceiling height.  I have 12" rafters, and a 6" fascia.  I want the siding to go up to the bottom of the soffit.

Not sure there is an answer here, but might be worth a look.

 

Posting the plan may help too.

the picture is too small to see any details , post the plan....

 

did you raise the roof after the fact ?  is auto roof off and needs an update? framing needs a rebuild? .......  too much guessing as you can tell

Seems like a bug to me but in this case checking the Balloon through option on the structure tab for the WALLS fixes the siding , the wall framing still stops at the rafter bottom, but a section shows two weird ??? I don't see in other views....

 

Is that a standard zipwall wall definition?  ( we don't have zipwall here , just read about it...)

thanks, balloon framing works! 

re zipwall, this is a special R6 zipwall.  It consists of 1" rigid insulation and 1/2" osb.  My standard wall assembly is 2x4 with fiberglass batts and the R6 zipwall.  I think having the continuous insulation over the studs makes more sense than high R in the wall cavity, but then no insulation at all the framing members (studs, headers, etc).

No idea why, but these settings seem to work. 

 

Check your framing.

checking the Truss Box ?   that causes the whole roof plane to drop to about 6" thick ....... at least in my plan....

 

I am not sure this is framed with a hip roof at 1/4" slope though...

Wasn't suggesting those suggestions were correct -- just that the walls filled in with them.

 

This seems just like the thread I posted above. Maybe he will report back what Chief had to say.
