I'm drawing a plan for a second floor home office space that includes an elevator. The elevator is essentially a round tube with windows. I was able to closely recreate the look of the elevator by creating a round room with windows and a door. The problem I am having is that I cannot get the ceiling of this "elevator room" to go all the way up to the ceiling of the larger space it's located in. For some reason part of the wall goes to the ceiling, but other parts do not which leaves a weird gap around the top of the elevator. The entire space is a reverse gable, therefore it has a sloped roof/ceiling plane. I suspect this is part of what's causing my problem. Can anyone help me figure out how to get the elevator walls to extend all the way up to the sloped ceiling? I attached two photos to help illustrate my problem.
I am having issues with an exterior wall.
There seems to be a random base plate that is generating a few feet about the first floor level.
It appears that this plate may also be causing an issue up at the second floor where there is a hole in the exterior wall.
I try deleting the base plate, but I am not able to select.
How can I fix this so that the exterior wall generates properly.
Any feedback is appreciated.
Thank you kindly.
See the areas circled in orange on the attached photos.

I'm having an issue where the framing members for a flat roof (1/4" slope) over a porch are not displaying correctly in the cross section. My default setting for rafter size and the specification in the roof plane dialogue for that roof plane are set to 5 1/2", but it always draws the cross section as a 2x4. If I select any of the framing members individually and open the dialogue box, it says it's 5 1/2". The trusses and framing for the rest of the house all come in correctly. Any quick thoughts come to mind?
also, Is it better to upload a screen shot showing the problem or the whole file on here?
Using X13. Have "framing default" checked for "Allow Automatic Balloon Framing"...but, as you can see in the picture below it's not working. I have auto framing walls turned on...experimented with the joist direction...didn't seem to have an effect.
I'm on a MAC...maybe this is a reason? Does anybody know if this new feature in X13 actually works?
