Dormer exterior wall gap question

Recommended Posts

In the attachment walls "A" have "No Definition" and are on a separate layer so I can turn them off in plan view later. Everything looks good from the inside of the dormer, but I'm getting the gaps on the exterior walls of the dormers (attachment 2). Since I have the same problem on each side to both dormers it must be something I'm doing wrong. I've tried many things in the process of trying to correct the problem, but it's now time I go for other advice before I do or say something I shouldn't. I just got out of the hospital for a heart attack so I don't need the aggravation. As always, any and all help is much appreciated. Thank you

Larry ,you can always just cut the dormer walls and paste them on the attic level., they won't show

it is your Roof Holes causing it by the look Larry , I made the one on the right rectangular and it fixed it .....

 

you can see in the 1st Pic, the left Roof hole notches into the wall so is still broken in the 2nd pic the RH Dormer is good again ....

Does it look the same on the inside? That wall A is Roof Cuts Wall at Bottom.

I didn't check actually .... plan plan keeps having micro pauses here , not sure if my computer or the plan....

 

there are 4 wall A's though.... not sure what the Hip wall designation does ? seen any documentation?

Here is the zip. file. I'm thinking when I sent it the first time it was still open in CA. I am using X10 Beta.

 

Eric.... Wall "A" is Roof Cuts Wall at bottom

 

Mick.... I'm not getting the same results that you are. I must be misunderstanding what you are trying to explain. Still working on your advice.

You 1st file was okay I opened it , I simply selected the Roof hole and made it rectangular , it snapped to the inside of the Dormer Room, but may have destroyed the "Inside look" judging from Eric's comment....

Eric.........The walls labeled "A" are only to the outside wall running horizontal on the plan  where they are broke. Beyond this wall they are labeled different.

Set the red walls to Knee Wall and Attic Wall.

 

I had changed them to interior walls, but the wall type should not matter.

Eric and others.................KNEE WALL & ATTIC WALL!! Sometimes it is such little mistakes that can make this program so frustrating. Thank you all again for your helpful time, patience and advice. It is always much appreciated. Have a great day.
