Intersecting Doorway Framing

Recommended Posts

I have 2 doorways that intersect each other perpendicularly (the headers form a T). I am trying to remove the sliver of framing that is appearing at the intersection point. I've checked the "Ignore Casing for Opening Resize" under the plan defaults and still can't fix.

are the doorways touching in plan view?  looks like it is still trying to place framing....

 

you could post the plan file so others can look....

 

also it's good to have your Forum Signature filled in please especially with the Software version,

and of course a Name is nice too :) see mine below in Blue for how to do that..

Doorway on the left. Right side wall used a break, then dragged bottom of wall up. 

 

Needs a couple of solid patches to hide the framing. A pony wall with a room divider bottom will also work.

Kbird1 - I think I finagled a way to get what I needed. This particular living room has some challenging ceiling vaults and height variations (challenging for me at least haha!) Also, I updated my signature thanks for the tip! :)

 

solver - Thanks for your help! This pointed me in a good direction.

Why do I never seem to think of these things? :wacko: Thanks, Eric. Gave you a point.

Thanks Mike.

 

As a followup, using a soffit is the easiest solution. No framing, but the drywall and moldings will all be correct.
