Pier and beam issues framing and floor deck showing.

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know why my pier and beam foundation floor joists and beams disappear when I try to do perpective and I have to back out of it? Open old one! I custom drawn floor joist and pads and 1 concrete block on each pad then drew beams and floor joists. I keep trying to pull siding down over to cover the beams and floor joists and then they all disappear. I need the floor decking to appear on a section over floor joist to with deck up level with entry and grass under home.

 

I did this project in Chief x11. I would appreciate any help in this apartment.

 

Thanks

I opened your file in X12 and pulled the siding down as per your post. 

 

Here is the result.

So maybe this is an X11 glitch, or maybe try one of the following.

1) Restart your system and try again

2) Reinstall X11 and try again

3) Install X12 (I really like it)

 

Hope one of these works for you

Thank you Mark#D,

 

Do you or someone else know how to bring the front porch deck up by Entry door with 4 steps to ground? Also put grass under apartment.

you should be able to just draw the steps and for grass under  open terrain and un tick hide terrain intersection buy building plus rebuild deck framing it will raise as you have already altered the floor level

Grass does not grow so well under apartments.  Maybe a terrain feature with sand or gravel.

the beams under the house disappear because you stole them from the deck  so rebuild deck framing the draw new house floor beams  then draw your stairs  see if that works

If you still want the siding to cover the floor beams take a look at the settings for the living room floor.

      I have designed a pergola and a deck. I cannot get the terrian to show right. It needs to be zero of level at back of deck by pool deck and slowly slope down to a bayou. it needs to be 36" to grade at edge of outer deck Then a stair going down to the end of stair which is around 5 fr lower that top of deck. I have not did much terrian and would appreciate your help. This is just a remodeling and adding a deck from the pool. 
       
      Thank  you,

      So I've drawn up a deck on a second floor but the framing is showing up on the floor below. I feel like I am missing some small detail but I can't figure this one out.

      Just a quick video on how to create a deck railing panel symbol...

      How would I go about raising the height of my roof, without changing the pitch? I want the roof line to end at the deck, but when I try to modify the roof with the edit handle the wall comes up against. I want the wall to end at the deck of my A-frame, ad have the roof end at the deck.

      When I build decks I **** to have the railing posts, (newels), set to the outside of the rim joists and bolted through the rim. Most codes don't allow for notching anymore but with a 4x4 I can bolt the full 4x4 to the outside of the rim and then overhang the decking a bit over the rim and still accomplish the 4" minimum opening between the bottom rail and the decking. I don't see an option to build the railing this way. I know I can do each piece manually but I would think this is not that uncommon of a building technique and there must be a setting for it. Seems like no matter what I do, deck railing posts are always sitting on top of the deck and defining the "wall". Essentially I am looking to create the deck perimeter at the correct size and then create the railing 3.5" total thickness, to the outside of the rim with 1" thick fascia boards then applied to the rim between the posts and the decking would then overhang the fascia boards by about a half inch.
