Help with Footing on Porches and Patios

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

This has to be something simple I'm overlooking but I'm wasting valuable time trying to figure it out. Figured I should bring together the brain trust to help me out.

 

I need my foundation plan to appear like this (note the solid line around the porch and dashed for the footing. Not dashed on both sides, and the other walls shown have the footing continuous and ignoring the patio:

This is where I am sitting currently(foundation view):

(Floor 1 view):

(The juncture at the underbelly, all funky):

Again, probably something simple. Hopefully the information provided is sufficient. 

 

Thanks in advance!

Ignoring the patio how?

Guess drawing a solid line over the dashed is too simple :)

Essentially the foundation, not looking at the porch, has a nice footing shown at those corners - mine is not as pretty.

And in regards to the line, I agree. I did that initially but a combination of the prior picture and my OCD is pushing me to search for the proper fix. The screenshot from above comes from a gentleman that has been helping me out and uses Chief. It's doable, but even he isn't entirely sure what I've done wrong here (on top of having limited time to help me out).

There is a post footing tool you can use to create that footing pad.
