Extra Height on Ceiling/Wall


Recommended Posts

This can happen if the Roof Planes are not sitting on the top plate properly  ie you raised roof Planes manually to get the right heel height,

 but Chief will frame the "space"  Automatically to support the Roof and fill in the wall

WOW....all these years, i alway raised the Roof 12" for heel height. But just never noticed that Chief framed that additional wall above the Main Wall.

just looking back at all my other Plans.....and there it is!!
