Let me start off by saying I am NOT an architect of any sort. My husband and I are building a house and I keep changing the floor plans. I cannot visualize anything on paper and we don't have anyone in our area that does these 3D renderings. I downloaded the trial to give it a shot myself and play around with changes before sending them to our architect. I watched a webinar the other week and I have watched video after video. However, I still cannot get the roof as I need it. I can't get it all connecting with the gable ends on the left and right ends of the house. I haven't been able to figure out how to add the additional window on the 2nd floor in the middle of the house. I know this is a rough sketch and its not all exactly the way our floor plans are, I am just trying to figure out how to get the exterior (mainly the roof) to work out as I have so far had good luck with all of the interior work. Any help and tips are greatly appreciated.
on our main floor, we have 9' ceilings, cathedral ceiling in the great room that is open above, and 8' ceilings upstairs.
Does anyone know how to draw these parapet eaves? They are not common here and I've only seen them used in one estate. If anyone has a cross-section drafted drawing of them, I'd love to have a look. Do they use a box gutter (big No-No in this area)?
If I use a soffit block, for some reason they don't touch and half the soffit block disappears. I've noticed this with using them as posts. If anyone can explain this, let me know.
I am afraid that this topic was mentioned several times, but never really answered.
I am working on house in Tucson, and this detail is killing me. It look like some kind of energy heel, but it's not. And I need these vertical ending web (stud, post, whatever) to attach other wall layers, and create a parapet wall.
Perfect truss for this is made by company from Sierra Vista, AZ, "Southwest Home and Hearth", http://www.southwesthomeandhearth.com/swt/trusstypes.htm, and they will probably be the chosen manufacturer, but I need to make this, because I need these trusses for interior (will be visible).
I tried all kinds of truss settings, to make it look like shown on image "Sloping-flat...jpg", but it just ignores me. And I don't have a clue in what direction should I go.
This is definitely possible, because entire list of trusses on that web page was made in Chief, but how did they do it?
How can I make truss like this?
