Interior walls in rooms with vaulted ceilings

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to add some interior walls into a room with cathedral ceilings.  I need the interior (dividers) to extend to the roof.  By default it seems they don't.  They disappear at the classical ceiling height... and a space is cut out of the roof where they would appear.  To reporduce

1) Draw a box room with exterior walls.  

2) Vault the ceiling

     Select room >> Room Specification >> Structure >> Uncheck "Flat Ceiling Over This Room"

3) Add an interior wall extending from any exterior wall out into the room

4) Add a floor camera to inspect your work

There's a hole in the ceiling now.  And the walls is like a pony wall or something.  It stops well short of the ceiling.  I need it to go all the way up to the ceiling.  

 

Any ideas?

 

I'm using Home Designer Suite 2019

In the room structure dbx, uncheck ceiling over this room.  It will build to the bottom the the roof structure.

I'm sorry that I'm not familiar with Home Designer Suite. Can you manually build the ceilings?

Hey guys thanks for helping me out!  

It doesn't look like I have that option in the room structure dbx.  Attached is a screen capture of my options on the room spec dbx.  

 

I've tried just about every combo I can think of.  The tool really wants to make shelf ceilings like this https://www.chiefarchitect.com/videos/watch/64/using-the-shelf-ceiling-room-structure-setting.html?playlist=96 or those nice short walls and holes in the roof shown above.  I need walls that connect to the ceiling/roof.

Ah... I'm trying to run with the big dogs.  Not a good idea apparently.  Sorry!  I'll go ask the harry-homeowners.  Thanks!

If you have the option to balloon thru ceiling, in the wall DBX, that will make the wall go up to the roof also.

If you have Auto Rebuild Attic Walls toggled on in General Wall Defaults, Chief will auto build attic walls to fill the space above the default flat ceiling height.
