Walls over porch

Recommended Posts

I’m trying to draw walls over my porch, just as part of the covered porch.  Tried doing t second floor but gives problems.  Any help is appreciated.  See attached drawing.  The columns end at the dashed line with 3’ wall to the roof line.

Multiple ways of doing this and probably depends on how you want things to frame.

 

This is a room with a raised ceiling and a Ceiling Plane drawn in at a lower level.

Are you trying to do what I shown on the attachment?  If so, just raise the ceiling and so that your louver's fit above the door? 

 

I love this beach style of architecture BTW.  Places like Seaside, Rosemary Beach, Watercolor Florida are inspirational.

Yes, very similar although yours looks more like a wall with a doorway.  Mine is 12x12 block columns with a double 2x12 header on top and return to block wall.  On top of the headers is wood framing to create the 3' wall over the porch.

What's the problem? What specifically are you having trouble with?

Draw it just like you would build it. Use a doorway and suppress the casing and the jamb and you are going to be left with an opening that looks just like that.

Just as Joey mentioned your columns are really just 4 walls of block with an exterior facade material.
