wall showing through the roof


Recommended Posts

I have a double stud wall building, with two sides at 12:12 and 2 sides at 5:12, hip roof.

 

I get the look below on the 12:12. sides. If I change all four sides to 5:12, I do not get this problem. The only way I can fix it is to delete the attic walls (and it took me a good hour or so just to determine it was an attic wall causing this).

 

 

 

I thought it was my 12" heel on the 5:12 side causing this, but I took that down to 0 and still has the same problem.

 

Seems to only be a problem with a double wall,  a normal 2x6 wall works fine

 

Does anyone know if I am not setting something up correctly? The chief video I looked at on double walls not not seem to show this scenario. And I do not see anything on the user form specifically for this (lots of other issues with double walls)

 

One other odd thing Is the height at 110-5/8s, but I put that to a normal 9' and no difference (As I would not expect that to matter). Other than that it is a vanilla structure

 

Thanks

it also does not matter if I put the inside stud wall on the main layer or the interior layer (which is the attached .plan)

doesnt do it at 8:12. It's almost like there is a "if top of wall to roof difference is greater than x, draw attic wall

me thinks there is a:

"take difference between roof and top plate and take pitch, do some magic formula"

We need to work on that too ;)

 

I'd send to Chief so they have a record of the problem.

 

For now, just make the wall invisible. If you don't want to see it in plan, put it on a new layer and turn its display off.

delete surface, thats a good tip thanks. One of the reasons it took me an hour is because I had trusses in my real plan so I thought maybe that was the problem, and then I thought I was doing the trusses wrong, and then I thought it was the offset, and then the double wall (thought maybe I did it wrong there) .... I think I finally clued in when I clicked on it in the cross section and it told me. But that didnt really help solving the reason why it was there, only that I then knew how to get rid of it. In other words I was assuming I was doing something incorrectly

 

interesting what it built:Untitled.thumb.jpg.c63c0a90fe352dacf1eac64efb78e21e.jpg

and the other reason it took so long, is I read through about 15 or so logged topics and watched 2 videos on double walls
