So I eventually need to put a deck underneath the one there. How do I go about demonstrating the framing on the plans without the two interfering with each other?

 

P.S. - Sorry if these questions seem rudimentary

You can always use ref sets.......and......  put each deck on a different level so they do not interfere with each......  adjust elevati9n as needed

Main floor deck framing will show up on Level 0 the same as 1st floor sub floor framing will show up on top of your foundation.

 

If you need to break from common standards you can set up a reference layer to show on another level.

      The lengths of framing members in schedules, i.e. rafters, joists, etc appear to be expressed in fractional inches by default.
      Can that be changed to be expressed in feet and fractional inches.

      I cannot seem to figure out how to make this exposed gable have the same shiplap siding on it that the house has. I built the patio piece by piece using framing members and added roof planes and ceiling planes then added the gable. Now II cannot figure out how to add siding.

      Hi, could someone check the attached plan. For some reason when I switch to Perspective framing overview, my layer set does not change with that, it stays as floor plan layer set. I spend a lot of time to figure out. Gave up. I know I can change the layer set to 3D framing layer set. But why it does not change by default. Could someone let me know where is the settings for that? Plan file attached for reference

      I am trying to figure out if there is a way to make a framing schedule for the entire project, and not just wall by wall. 
      We are finding that framing schedules do a better job listing out the members and sizes then the material lists. 
      Thoughts/suggestions?

      I think I asked this before but can't remember the answer.
      The wall surrounding the Open Below room frame down into the floor area where I have a floor truss.
      Is there a setting that stops this extended wall? I have in the past just modified the framing in the wall detail but would like a better solution.
       
      Thanks
