Pony wall problem: gable wall

Recommended Posts

Cannot post the plan so here goes.

 

In a second floor exterior wall under a full gable, the wall top equals ceiling height of 97-1/8" and above that wall is stacked an auto generated attic wall. 
 

The wall finish outside is claps up to 81.5" window height and board/batten above up to the soffits.

 

Wanting to do the battens and the horizontal trim band they terminate on as material regions, I deleted the attic wall and 

 

1. Redefined the second floor wall as a pony wall and set its height

 

2. Redefined wall structure as goes thru ceiling above

 

But in elevation there is no upper part of the pony wall visible.  Lower yes, upper no.

Why did you do all of that?

To avoid complicating the batten work with material regions.  The b+b region begins at window head height, more than a foot below ceiling height.

Material Regions will stack -- light and dark blue are material regions.

But drawn on same wall.

 

I don't understand.

 

You want to do B&B using material regions. Draw one for the board, and a bunch for the battens and another for the trim band.

Sure, I'll try that, but my b&b is the entire attic wall and the top 15" of the wall below.

 

Presumed all MR details had to be within a wall's bounds, and don't want to see joints along line where attic wall bears on wall below.

It will spread across both walls.

I purposely made the light blue MR cross over the attic/first floor wall intersection to show how it works.

 

I do this all the time.
