Foundations

Recommended Posts

Why does the foundation always screw up my porches? The first picture is the house after I built the foundation and the 2nd picture is before the foundation was built. I built the porch by using invisible exterior walls. It did the back porch exactly the same way.

Sure, I've never had this problem before either.

I have save the original file without the foundation for a backup.

Did you designate the rooms as porch and deck?  Sometimes if it’s set as unspecified it will drop it down to the foundation “room” below.

I noticed your exterior walls are marked as Foundation Wall and don't believe this is needed.

 

Your invisible walls defining the porches are brick walls so you are getting a brick ledge.

I will try and fix everything you suggested. I didn't do that on purpose so I guess it's the default.

 

Should I not use exterior walls for the porch and make them invisible? If not, how is the best way to make porches?

 

Thank you "SOLVER".

I went in and took off the check mark on all the exterior walls as foundation walls and it worked perfectly when I built the foundation. It didn't drop the ceilings on the porches.

 

Thank you very much for your help.

 

I honestly don't know how that was checked but it was and now I know to watch that part. You definitely helped me out. THANKS AGAIN!.
