Deck rails

I have a mezzanine I am building in a garage and the railing is 1.5' above the deck floor.  I have tried changing the room type to balcony, etc. and it has not fixed the railing, even when I reframe the walls.  Any ideas or tips for fixing these rails?

 

TIA

Likely need a little more information to help out on an issue like this.  Not exactly sure if the railing is elevated and you want it on the floor or the other way around ?  Possibly default wall bottom height but could really be anything. Might have to post your plan file and let us know what version you are using or at least a screen shot of the situation.

 

Welcome to the forum and I hope we can find a solution for you.

Hey thanks for responding! I am attaching a picture of it to this post.  I need the railing to sit on the balcony floor surface evenly (like most railings).  For some reason it is sitting about 1.5' above the floor surface.  I am currently using X9.  If you need any more info I am able to give it to you.

It looks like it is because you changed the floor height of the Open Below Room , make it the same as the Mezz. level ie 105" , it doesn't matter since it is Open below anyway and not really there. And as Glenn mentioned change the Room Type to Storage for example ( rename as Mezz. Level) , so the edge of the floor generates properly and you get a ceiling underneath... I also noticed the stairs to the Mezz. need an adjustment too,  the top flight is buried in the Mezz. Floor , making the lower Flight 1 tread longer/higher may work so that 2nd flight can be then shortened one step.

      I'm having a problem getting a deck to remain when I try to contain it under a roof.  The function of the roofs to the covered deck are to make a covered walkway to the covered deck.  I didn't know where to begin searching for this issue so I'm posting this.
       
      The attached screenshot shows where I'm able to get the roof and deck to look right (4'-1") and where the deck room conflicts with the roof (4'-0").  Ideally, I would make these both 4'-0".  When I try to adjust the deck rail in or out from the back of the house (shown at 4'-0") the deck disappears.
       
      I have attached the .pln file.  Any advise is appreciated.

      Creating a Header schedule I select one row & click the "Find Object in Plan" which takes me to the wall frame view instead of the plan view.
      Do I have a setting off or is this normal?

      So I'm trying to get my rafter ends to show up like so (please ignore the rafter tails for all intent and purposes). I've tried adjusting the birdsmouth settings to get the desired result but no matter what I do, I can't get the seat cut. I can only get a plumb cut or a square cut, and the plumb cut is going through the floor and walls. Can someone please help, because this is driving me crazy! (also the steeper roof pitch is 25":12")

      Hi All,
       
      "Roof Beams Appear as Solid Timbers not I-Beams as Preferred."
       
      I have a small insignificant detail problem that I wish to resolve and wonder if anyone has a Tip or Trick to fixing the fact that my Steel I Beams show up perfectly in my Posts and Deck patio beams but not in my roof beams.
       
      I have changed all of my defaults to I Beams in my settings to no avail, just curious if this a detail I will have to learn to live with or a glitch in Chief?
       
      Also I would like my I beams to show in the interior walls and imagine in order for this to happen I will need to create a niche and paint it black steel? Correct?
       
      Please see attached image.
       
      Thank you in advance,
      John
