Changing first floor room heights after second floor is built

Recommended Posts

Multiple times I have gone into one of my rooms on the first floor only to find that the ceiling height is wrong, and the second floor above has already been built.

 

In this case I want to lower the room heights ONLY on the portion of the first floor below the second floor.  (We're building the second floor addition.)  The first floor is composed of 4 rooms in that area... but I can't seem to change them all at once, and I can't change them one at a time. 

 

NOTE:  I do NOT want to change the ceiling heights for the entire 1st floor... We live in the hill country, and the floors are not all on a single plane.

You will have to change the rooms 1 at a time, I haven't found a way to do multiple unless I change the default.

but as you only want to change 4 rooms.

It would also help if we knew what program and version you were using, as a few things were changed in this area over the last couple of versions.

I'm using Chief Architect Premier X11

 

I can only change one room (Any of the four I need to change), but then I can't change any others because....

 

"Ceiling values may not be changed as the floor above this room has varying heights."

why not upload the plan.

without seeing the plan I would look at temporary room dividers .

I have done it in the past but it took perseverance.

Would be happy to upload the file, but when I try I get the following error.

 

I am having to teach myself everything, so I don't always know when I'm doing it as expected, versus how it is supposed to be done.

The plan cannot be open in Chief when you upload.

 

Try this first.

 

One or more of the 2nd floor rooms have differing floor heights.

 

You can use the Object Eyedropper to select one that is correct, then propagate that setting, or just open the rooms and set the floor to the same height.

SUCCESS!!! Thank you Eric and Graeme.

 

PS: I greatly enjoyed coming to Idaho last September and I am hoping to get to attend another in person training soon.
