I have a design with a concrete slab foundation, and i have the stem wall set to 200mm, but on my porch Chief is forcing the Stem Wall to be 250mm, and it wont let me click the "default" check box (it immediately clears) and if i set any value other than 250mm, it reverts to 250mm when i close the dialog. Any idea what causes this?
We are doing a basement renovation, where we are lowering the floor in order to create greater ceiling height. This involves demolishing the existing basement floor and building a new foundation stem wall and footing inside the existing foundation. The footing on this new foundation is asymmetrical. It's exterior is flush with the new foundation stem wall and extends 3 feet into the basement.
Can you create an asymmetrical footing on a foundation wall? That is, where there is no exterior footing but a substantial interior footing.
I am an inexperienced Chief user and new to this forumn. I am having an issue i have tried for hours to resolve to no avail, I am hoping someone here can point me in the right direction. I am trying to create a wood deck framed over a stem wall. For some reason the rim joist of the deck is set to the inside of the stem wall, and the rail above is over the stem wall as it shouls be but is floating because the deck framing is mis-aligned. I am including a photo of the condition for clarification. What i want to do is move the rim joist out to line up with the outside of the stem wall. Can anyone help me? I am using X5
