Openings showing up in foundation wall

Recommended Posts

Hi~

Can anyone tell me what I need to change so that the upper level openings don't show up in the basement/foundation walls?  I'm working off of a plan someone else started and there are funny little things showing up that I can't seem to figure out...

Thanks.

Karen, you have to save and close the plan file before you post the plan, there is no data in the file you posted.

If it's a pony wall then select to have to lower section of the pony wall shown in plan view. If it's not a pony wall then look to the floor above to ensure that the door isn't in fact cutting the foundation for some reason.

The door is in fact cutting the foundation wall because the second floor levels are -3/4" dropping the door sill in to the foundation wall below. Try raising the second floor level to 0" and that cut will disappear.

Thanks.  I got it to work, but only after pulling the top of each basement wall down and then snapping it back into place.  Must've needed to regenerate.  I appreciate the help!

One way to skin this particular cat but you might want to think about having your first floor set to 0" instead of -3/4" as it creates a much better platform for future room structure/height changes.

That's exactly what I ended up doing, which is where it should've been from the start!  Thanks.
