Though I always council my clients to match their interior wall finishes to their soffits, sometimes I find they are resistant to the idea and want to use two different materials for these items.
However, I only have the option to change the default for the two together:
Is there a way to create a new material default, or to separate these? I guess it's not a big deal but I always wondered if there was some deeper insight that I was just not picking up on... perhaps some Chiefer out there can enlighten me?
I am working on an ADU and the county requirements say it needs to be 900 square feet or less. On one hand, the county code says:
The ADU cannot exceed 50% of the square footage of the habitable area of primary residence or 900 square feet, whichever is smaller
I have 3 questions: Is "Habitable Area" determined on dimensions from Interior or Exterior walls when it comes to the 900 square feet requirement? Does this vary city to city or is there a code standard?
My current plan has a total of 900 square feet. I also need to know if this total is based on a measurement from Interior walls or Exterior walls? How do I confirm? Is there a default setting where you set this to factor for living area calculations?
Is there a standard in the IBC which states that the living area is always calculated on Interiors or Exterior walls?
I will need to reduce my footprint if I find the requirement is based on exterior walls dimensions.
Any experience with this code situation and knowledge on how to confirm this calc within my settings would be greatly appreciated.
I'm a new CA user and I'm attempting to draw plans for an addition. I have an exterior stucco wall with two windows and a door. After the remodel, this exterior wall will become and interior wall, and the windows and door will be removed. In this new INTERIOR wall there will be a new 6' opening that will occupy the same space as one of the previous windows and door.
The problem I'm having is creating a drawing for the building department that shows both floor plan layouts, with both the new and existing floor plans. As soon as I update the window type, or the window/door space, it changes all the drawings that I've created.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I'm encountering an issue where interior walls drawn under a flat ceiling plane, but near a sloped ceiling, are stopping at the rafters, instead of the ceiling plane. It makes no difference if "Stop at Ceiling Above" is enabled for the wall objects. Is there any way to get these walls to stop at the ceiling plane? It's very easy to recreate this issue, but I have attached a super simple plan that demonstrates it.
Note: There is no issue when there is a normal automatic ceiling above. To recreate the issue, I have to turn off ceiling above and then manually create a new ceiling plane that is higher than the top plate. Using version X8.
