You can use a roof plane instead of a ceiling plane and insert the skylight. You will need to adjust the baseline height of the roof plane down to get the ceiling inside where you want it.

Raquel,

 

I am trying to build a bathroom with the same flat ceiling to slanted ceiling - just like you have above.

I am new at this, and I have watched numerous videos on walls and ceilings.

But I can't for the life of me figure out how to create this.

could you please give me some direction on how to create the wall/ceiling structure?

Thank you,

Leslie Duncan

Please check your messages, and tell us what you are unable to figure out.

 

Do you understand how to use a roof or ceiling plane to create the sloped ceiling?

Build your roof first, then building the sloped ceiling using ceiling planes.  Set the base of the sloped ceiling at the same height at the top plate of the wall.  Experiment, you may need to set the base an inch or 1 1/2" higher.  Set the top of the slope at the flat ceiling height

Set the room ceiling height to the hight where the sloping ceiling meets the external wall.

Auto build the roof - it will build off that low ceiling height.

Turn off auto build roofs

Uncheck Flat Ceiling Over This Room

Change the ceiling height to the height of the flat section of roof

Click OK

Check Flat Ceiling Over This Room

Place your skylight in the roof.

Mark's way is different to mine.

Mine used a single roof slope over the whole room (a shed roof) with flat ceiling on the upper part of the roof - resulting in an attic space above the flat ceiling.

Mark used 2 different roof slopes to get the 2 ceiling planes with the ceiling planes following the roofs.

Pick your poison.

And the good thing is that there is usually more than 1 way to do something in Chief.

The challenge is when you want the skylight shaft wall at the lower side to be aligned to the wall below.  A continuation of that wall right up to the skylight curb.

Bear in mind that some of the advice above may or may not help you if you're using Interiors.  The roof tools in Interiors are a bit more limited.
