I am trying to figure out how to place a beam in between the 2 walls so that the roof over hang will not jut out like this.
I am assuming i need to put a beam in here and then the roof will continue on the same plane as the rest of the roof?? but i can't figure out how to do this. Room divider does not work..
New upgrade to X15 had a great upgrade to floor trusses. Now I can lose my 3.5" wide joist place holders to keep my Material Lists accurate.
What I could use to compliment this is the same truss on the rake. I design a lot of homes with at least some portion vaulted and the only way to make the top of windows match the pitch on the interior and exterior is to have the roof and the ceiling be the same pitch as well.
For my final plans I call out parallel cord trusses. Basically this is a floor truss pitch up to match the rake. Does anyone know if Chief is capable of such a maneuver?
Thanks to the Group,
How do I go about putting a roof on this round room only? I've watched the related video and done some searching on line. When I use the Build Roof Planes and try to retain manually drawn roofs (which all other roof planes are) CA puts auto roof planes on top of all the other roof planes.
I've looked all through the discussion threads and can't find any mention of the use of the ZIP systems wall and roof panels. It's a coated OSB with a 1" or 1/2" insulation bonded to it. It's a structural panel that has the OSB on the outside and no housewrap is required. The window and door nailing flanges would be installed on the outside OSB surface, along with the siding (Smartside, Hardie, etc.). For maximum wall strength, one would want the panel to extend down to the bottom of the rim board and lap back up the wall. This would provide insulation and a water barrier all the way down to the top of the footing.
With Chief's Wall Type framing rules (Main and Exterior layer definitions), I'm not sure if this needs to be 2 wall types or if the ZIP panels would be placed as a skin around the house?
Anyone out there designed a house with this type of walls?
