Rear deck will not show up in rendering either.

FFE 61.00, top of cmu  blocks 60.00, existing grade 57.30', top of grade beam 57.33. garagefloor 52.33 8 cmu blocks abovegarage slab.perfer 12" all around outside of garage foundation.

Open each room and uncheck Mono Slab.

 

Set the floor structure to Default.

This pretty much what I told him over the phone. The only other thing I mentioned to him was to maybe set one of the rooms as you describe. The select that room and use the "match properties" tool and click the rooms he wants to change instead of opening each room to make the changes.

I did this and it did not fix the issuers!as you can see on attachment. 

Open each room and uncheck Mono Slab.

Still did not fix issue to get Floor josits to show on 1st floor foundation.  Do I need to draw joists in  manuely and cmu  below the josits? Engineer will  be designing,  butI need to show so perpective and  bldg section is right and close in with latice.

Made the changes I suggested above, then built the foundation (changed wall type to CMU).

It just has 4 cmu stacked every so often 8-10' or whatever engineer says. I  believe I have it worked out. Just need to get garage slab  looking right, 18 in stem wall and siding above. . Need Open floor joist  in crawl space! Use lattice or some other product to close in betwee. ( I assume on elevations use poljyline and put  between cmu and put  material. 

 

Thank you solver,

Newel, most places around here and for sure the City Of Houston won't let you span more than 6' for the CMU blocks. I'm sure your engineer will know that though.

      The wall shown is on the same plane with a false gable roof above only a portion. The wall from the interior will reflect the same ceiling height as the rest of the home, but from the front elevation I would like the wall to be taller to move my gable up. How can this be done in CA as the wall heights are dictated by the room's ceiling height?

      Hello All, 
       
      I am working on a project, which its an addition to a service garage with an apartment above. The problem that I am having is that I need a new wall against an existing in order not to see a hole in the area of the existing wall. As you can see in the image of the second floor plan below where I circled it is where I need to add another wall. 
       

       
      As you can see from my front elevation. I have a hole in the area where there is no wall. 
       

       
      I have attached a back-up of plan to this email for reference also. I am open to other suggestions on how to fix this issue. 
       
      Thank you in advance for the help.

      Does anyone know ho fix issues I have on this commercial remodeling addition?
      1) Windows and bar cabinets are not against the wall!
      2) wall is not showing on full camera looking back toward where it attaches to the existing building. Wall existing is brick on inside, unless I decide to cover it with gypsum bd!
      3) I have a 10 ft. plate with 9 ft dropped ceiling 2 ft x 4 ft acoustic tile in new addition.

      I have a strange problem with floor joists on this project.  Once again a client-supplied file that I have made lots of adjustments to, but when I generate floor joists each room on the second floor generates a rim joist around it, and the joists go all over the place.
       
      Here is a view of the first floor prior to generating joists.
       
      And here is the view of automatically generated joists 
       
      Note the seemingly random direction of joists in closets and in some floor panels.  Why is the program generating floor joists around each second floor room?
