I am having Chief Architect X14 build floor framing and it keeps adding a double rim joist in the middle of a span. There is a Glulam beam in the middle of the garage floor, and a bearing wall for the other bearing line but I can't figure out why it is doing this. There are no walls above this floor system. First time posting so not sure what is needed to answer this question.
Is there a way to use the Wall Type DBX for this L Block foundation (or some other way) so the slab displays to the inside edge of the L Block. The "L Block" is created as a pony wall (see Wall Type DBX in screenshot) but I can't figure out how to manipulate the slab. Any ideas would be appreciated.
I'm trying to create an as-built with the porch as shown on the photo on the right (in the screenshot attachment). I've got the upper porch and ramp in place but can't get the lower porch to drop 16". I thought it would be as easy as adjusting the room floor down 16" but that doesn't seem to work. I've attached the PLN file (zipped X14). Any input on how to do this would be welcome.
I am working on a 4-plex on a sloped site so the floor levels of each unit are different. On the left end unit, when I try to change my standard basement floor level from -119 5/8" to -95 5/8" it works in all the 'rooms' but won't stay changed in the 1/2" space between the firring walls and the foundation walls. I've tried changing a firred wall to have no room definition so it included the 1/2" space but then the whole room goes back to the -199 5/8". I've tried everything I can think of and it just won't stay at -95 5/8".
I've moved the footings up to the proper location but as you can see in the .pdf view, the windows are 24" too low and the slab in that 1/2" space is 24" too low. I can't seem to figure out how to get it to appear accurately. I've included the plan file just in case. I'd appreciate any ideas.
btw... I'm using CA Premier X12
