can the garage SWT be different than main bldg?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'm wondering what setting might be used to de-couple the Garage's Stem Wall Top (SWT) from the stem wall in the rest of the house?

 

I would like to push my entire garage wall/floor assembly, as is, down.  No combination of adjustments in the garage's Room Specification / Structure tab seem to allow me to do that.

 

Thanks, in advance!

Did you change it in the 'Absolute Elevations' section of the foundation dbx ?

Looks like you need to lower the footing too though.

Should work.  You may need to post your plan.

That's it.  Lowering the Absolute Ceiling Height in combination with lowering the absolute floor height the same amount, did it.

 

Thanks, Michael.

You bet.  Just FYI, you can also simply move the Absolute Stem Wall Top in the room above.
