How to close face of arched ceiling?

Recommended Posts

I created a curved ceiling plane in this exterior porch room, but I can't figure out how to close the face above the arch?  I suppose I could create a wall with an arched opening to match, but would like to know if there's a different / better way?

Do you need framing or just to have a correct look?

Look is most important, but would be nice to know how to get the framing to work if/when needed.

I suppose I could do a big solid up there too... but is that the only way?

Something in this might help.

Thank you for that Eric.  It kind of worked.  It did curve the attic wall up high as in your example, leaving a gap,  but wouldn't snap down to close it off after pulling out the ceiling past the wall and snapping it back as in your example.  I ended up manually dragging the 'curve' down to close it off point by point.   I may end up just going with the arched door opening solution, only problem with that is the stone wainscott has gaps at the opening.

This uses a doorway.

Just figured this out. The plan I used in the image above did not need this.

 

Look how the wall containing the doorway is defined.
