Basement Window


Recommended Posts

They really don't like being there do they.  Try placing them on level 1 and then move them to their absolute position and it should work the way you want it to but you still have some floor framing to deal with somehow.

Placing the window on the 1st floor and moving it down should work, but then the window displays on the 1st floor.

 

You could break the bottom of the brick wall and pull it up so it goes over the window instead of through it.

thank you for the response. Its a finished basement, hence I could not measure the joist depth and you can see them in the site picture as how they look on site. I am trying to recreate for my drawings.. Do you know how could I add the sill thick as it appears in the site picture?

For the window you can draw the sill profile and put it into your library as a molding and then apply it to the window.

For the door I think you just need to use a p-solid.

      Hello,
       
      I am working on an as built for a 1800's house. The door and window trim is 5 3/4" wide. My problem is that there a few instances where the door or window trim has been cut down to fit up against another wall. For example there's a window in one of the corners that is nearly up against the perpendicular wall. The trim on the left side of the window is 5 3/4" but the trim on the right side is around 3". 
       
      Is there a way to place the window further into the corner and cut off the trim? Can I make the trim on only side of the window a smaller width? This is a pretty common occurrence in our work and I would like to have a method of solving this issue.
       
      Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

      I have a problem in one file where windows drop out, or are deleted when I place a new cabinet or adjust an existing cabinet that is against the wall containing the window.
      Anyone had this happen.  Any solutions?
      Thanks.

      is it possible to display the door size beside the door panel in the plan with a macro?

      My chosen floor keeps appearing black (it is medium walnut floor from the Chief Architect library). I tried to see if it was all of them, but it seems to just be this single flooring type. I haven't touched any of the display settings for it, so I'm at a loss. Any help? (I'm very new with Chief Architect so this might be any easy fix)

      At one time, the hinge/swing direction of cabinet doors was displayed in elevation views, but it isn't happening any more.  Is there a setting that I need to change?
