Stairs halfwall to follow stairs

Recommended Posts

I was messing around with my template wanting to get some more things in place for my stairs and defaults. I ran into this before and just moved on, but now I am drawing homes using Chief and need to find a way to angle or follow the stairs with a halfwall. Thank you

Tight? If wall is 4.5", stair sections need to be that space apart.  No Chief 4 me right now.

I think it may be because I have a halfwall on the top floor - I may need to turn my lower wall into a solid rail - trying that now

I'll keep working on it. The cap is on the lower stairs but the wall is following the higher stairs also without a cap. Doing it this way only shows the wall on the lower floor and blank on the upper. I'm still digging...

Wow! I think I just did it by adding a solid rail wall on the lower floor. It still only shows the wall on the lower floor and not on the upper floor. Maybe I'll try a pony wall.

So I think I have a process now. The lower floor needs the halfwall (solid rail) follow the stairs.

The top floor does not show a wall - I even made a pony wall and tried the options to go thru floor, etc.

Then I added a small return of the wall where the halfwall meets the stairs on the top floor - this completed the wall. Then i was able to put the angled wall up under it.

I think it looks good in plan view and 3D.

The top wall should run all the way across the stairwell.  The stairs will create the opening, and you'll like your wall junction.

      Is there a way to change the line style on a door to a dashed line so I can show it as a future door?

      I have run into this with a few plans. I did not use provide framing detail, but for the clients that want to see the detail in 3D, I like to produce a 3D framing model that can mess with online. However, I have found that some of my walls in the foundation area do not generate the framing as the main and second floors do.
      The support walls with a footing do not show as framing. And the Fur walls also do not show framing. Also the lower daylight walls remain with siding on them.
      Thoughts ???

      Has anyone run into this before? This is now the second plan where this has happened. I did go through my library and make sure things were set up as defaults.

      So I just completed a plan - spent about 3 hours putting my notes and things on 5 sections. The client wanted a few changes so I opened the plan and see that I have no sections. I looked at my archives - nope! - I have is saving every 2 minutes. Is there hope are does this happen and I just have to get to work again?

      I'm trying to understand the materials for walls.
      I spent some time going through all my default walls in the Default Settings, making sure I set all my materials for my interior and exterior wall materials to default (checked default and see default noted in the materials tab.) I also went through my library one wall at a time to make sure all settings matched and set to default - especially for my interior and exterior materials. Then I created a New drawing and added some walls to see all my settings were working correctly - which they were. I had both exterior and interior walls drawn and added some walls from my library and all those walls also checked out good. Siding and wall colors/details were what I set up in my template. Nice!  Ok, I thought I would go into the Defaults on the New drawing and change my interior wall color. Nothing changed. Ok, so while floor heights, joist, etc. all seem to change things in the current plan, wall material changes do nothing to existing walls. Is this correct? So if I have 6 different wall types in the drawing and I want to change the color of the wall, do I need to open each one and change the color in Wall Types? I do see that I can control these walls form the Define Wall Types... dbx. I would just have to know what walls are in the drawing. And this does change the walls - so this works. I know I can use the Material Eyedropper but that causes other issues when I want to change things in the Define walls area - and the reason I went back to make sure everything is set to defaults. Taking me some times to wrap my head around how these defaults work. So it seems to me that if all my walls, set up in Defaults Settings (each wall type) AND in my Library, that changing the Materials in the Default Settings should change all the walls in the plan if all the walls in the plan are set up to use the default materials. Maybe I am missing something, but if I have a client that want to see vertical siding vs horizontal, or one overall color for the interior walls, that I would not have to change all the different wall types added into the plan one by one.  How do others address this issue?  
      Thank you,
