How do I make walls go to the ceiling (see attached photos)


Recommended Posts

I'm drawing a plan for a second floor home office space that includes an elevator. The elevator is essentially a round tube with windows. I was able to closely recreate the look of the elevator by creating a round room with windows and a door. The problem I am having is that I cannot get the ceiling of this "elevator room" to go all the way up to the ceiling of the larger space it's located in. For some reason part of the wall goes to the ceiling, but other parts do not which leaves a weird gap around the top of the elevator. The entire space is a reverse gable, therefore it has a sloped roof/ceiling plane. I suspect this is part of what's causing my problem. Can anyone help me figure out how to get the elevator walls to extend all the way up to the sloped ceiling? I attached two photos to help illustrate my problem.

      I'm looking for some suggestions on how to build the sloped ceiling underneath the stair platform. I can make a sloped ceiling plane, but then I don't' know how to build it out. All of the other methods I've seen require building a roof. However this does not have or need any roof framing. I guess I could build a polyline solid and save that as a soffit? Is that the best way to do it? It's kind of an odd setup if you ask me, but I need to include the detail in an as built plan for a remodel project.
      Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

      the walls on the front and right sides of this building are the same. Yet i cannot get the end of the floor joists (which are now invisible) to be covered by any material. The room in that corner of the house is the same one on the front and on the right, both in the basement and ion the main floor.
      What am I missing here?

      I'm Running Chief X8, MS Windows 10 on SurfacePro3. 
      Building three stories over a basement.  Trying to create the Elevator Shaft. Elevator Shaft... 4 framed walls each floor to create a shaft for the elevator.  Walls are Aligned with walls below. I have stair ways where Open Below rooms eliminate the Floor and Framing like they should.  I have an atrium on floor 2 overlooking to floor 1, created with a railing and room Open Below... this works too (no floor).    
      But on each floor where I box in the Elevator Shaft with 4 walls, create the room, designate it as "Open Below" there is still framing and decking inside the Elevator Shaft.  I have "Rebuilt floors and Ceilings" and "Rebuilt Framing"  does nothing. 
      I have turned on and off Auto Framing. Deleted and Recreated walls Created the Shaft bottom floor first... and top floor first.  
      One thing I have noticed is that this plan has created a Center Line running front to back in the plan and the front wall of the elevator shaft is sometimes split when I draw it.
      Any Ideas on how to get rid of the floor inside the Elevator Shaft?
