How do I create columns the full hight of the house...

Recommended Posts

How can I create these surrounding decks with columns the full hight of the house inside the railing as shown in the pictures here?

Are you asking about creating the decks (balcony) or just the columns?

You will need to place the columns manually.

But how do I make them go through the deck like in the picture?

Place on the lower floor, then increase the height.

      Hi,
      I am having trouble with getting my third floor deck supports to extend and connect with my first floor deck. There is no decking on the second floor (the second floor is essentially a half floor almost, I had to create it to be able to put a loft above a room on the first floor). I am pretty new to Chief, and have been able to figure a lot out on my own however, I am apprehensive about turning off the "automatic decking" (which the pop-up message told me I would have to do whenever I tried just extending one of the posts).
      To add-- I am an interior design student, this is for one of my final projects so, as much as I would like for the decking to be up to code, it isn't imperative, I mainly need the posts to extend all the way down so that I can place furniture accordingly, and also so that my elevations aren't wonky looking.
       
      THANKS SO MUCH FOR ANY AND ALL HELP!!
      I've include a picture of the structure below.

      I want my decks to look like the decking runs down the side 2-3 planks. At the moment I am doing it manually each time, but it is having a glitch. 
       
      What do they call this side part in CA (some US names are different to Australian). Does anyone know how I would set this up?

      I designed a custom column and need to use it in the railing on a deck/screened in porch but a can not find it.   The program Chief 10x will not let me open user catalog only 
      the core catalog, bonus and manufacture.  is there a special way i need to save the column?

      I want to create basic detail notes and sheet notes which follow a letter or number outline.  For example:
      1.  Alphabetical sheetnotes are not referenced in the plan;
           Numeric sheetnotes are referenced in the plan."
       
      The second line of text should indent flush with the first line of text.
      Can this basic set of notes be created in Chief (without importing a PDF from another program)?
      Also, is there any way to create columns of text?
      Thanks all.
