Stem Wall Heights

Recommended Posts

I have a design with a concrete slab foundation, and i have the stem wall set to 200mm, but on my porch Chief is forcing the Stem Wall to be 250mm, and it wont let me click the "default" check box (it immediately clears) and if i set any value other than 250mm, it reverts to 250mm when i close the dialog.  Any idea what causes this?

Add the plan File to your post above so someone can look for you. Make sure the plan is closed in Chief before you try , as Chief Locks the File while in use.


Also being you 1st post it is best to fill in your Forum signature with your Version etc as different versions have different remedies.... see my Sig for how to do that.....


If you are using a CA "Home" Product  the best place to post is on Home Talk not Chief Talk can use the same Username and PW over there too.

      I am trying to construct a home on a slab and I am going to use ICF walls around the perimeter with footings. The bottom of the footing needs to be 52" below grade and the interior of the icf walls are filled in and the slab is poured either on top of the ICF walls or inside the ICF walls. All the tutorials show how to make a slab foundation or a crawlspace but I don't see an option for a stem wall and footing below the slab without a crawlspace.

      Hi Everyone,
         I am an inexperienced  Chief user and new to this forumn. I am having an issue i have tried for hours to resolve to no avail, I am hoping someone here can point me in the right direction. I am trying to create a wood deck framed over a stem wall. For some reason the rim joist of the deck is set to the inside of the stem wall, and the rail above is over the stem wall as it shouls be but is floating because the deck framing is mis-aligned. I am including a photo of the condition for clarification. What i want to do is move the rim joist out to line up with the outside of the stem wall. Can anyone help me?  I am using X5
