Wall type (Pony wall Foundation) Help

Recommended Posts

I created a recessed stem wall foundation using pony walls, and a wall cap to represent the sill for the dropped floor joists as shown in the first pictures.  I added this wall to my library, but when I use it, I get what's shown in the 2nd picture.  Is it possible to have it come out the same as the way I saved it without having to tweak it ?

Seems to work for me.

Looks to me like you're getting the same issue I'm having.. no?  The top part of your wall should be short, just the depth of the floor joists like in your first pic.  I assume that one is the one you used to send to the library?  Why didn't it come out the same when you used it in the 2nd pic?

The image on the left shows the wall in use. The plate is located in the same place as the wall in the library (shown on the right). The plate is not at the bottom of the wall as you show.

 

The overall height of the wall in the library does not matter.

Ahaa... I figured it out.  It works even better than I imagined, apparently automatically adjusting the top part for the floor thickness.  I hadn't formed a room above the foundation when I copied it which is why it wasn't working right.

By the way, before figuring it out, I was going to share my wall here, but after 10 minutes of searching for how to do that, no luck.
I believe I've seen people share library items here before... how's it done?

Right click on the item, Export Library.

You could also draw it in a plan and post that.

Jeez....so easy.  I've seen that, but I always thought that would export the WHOLE library.  Should say 'Export Library Item'...

Now if you can just get both sill plates to show up automatically...!

It does!  The one you see in the views above are not a true sill, but a wall cap, so the sill directly below the wall (on top of the stemwall) automatically builds with the other framing

That's pretty sneaky!
