Can't select individual rooms in plan file on floor 1

Recommended Posts

This is strange but on floor level 1 only the whole building footprint can be selected, not individual rooms.  Anyone have any ideas as to what I have done wrong.  This plan is an asbuilt that is in progress.

A room definition problem. Check all wall connections.

Hi David, 

 

Thanks for going through that exercise.  I will chase down the problem.  Many of the things that you noted like the bathroom wall gap for the furring wall was actually a plumbing chase.  There are some very strange items that I wouldn't have done, for example, the masonry wall where the stairs go to the basement.  This was a very rough draft of the house just getting to the spot where I was blocking out spaces from the site measurements.  Typically in an occupied house, it is really hard to get all measurements that would help to resolve conflicts because of furniture, drapes and sometimes a corner of the house with piles of stored materials.  

I suspect there is a discontinuity somewhere with one of the interior walls and the exterior walls.  But so far I can't find it.  Some of the things that you moved make the build not "as-built"  but that is such a minor quibble.  You found the needle in the haystack, and that is what counts.  Thanks David.
