How to build this sloped ceiling (see photo)

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.

Ceiling planes come with framing options which I assume there is likely some framing in there to help support the landing.   By " build it out " are you referring to the triangle on the left side facing the camera ?   A custom 2 x 3 or 2 x 4 no room definition wall may work there or if not you can always fill it in with a polyline solid.

I would use a polyline solid. If framing needed to be shown in a plan set, I'd handle that using CAD in a section view.

      Hello! 
       
      I am very new to chief architect so I need some assistance.
       
      I have a two story building where the ceiling height over the living space and part of the mud room has 9ft ceilings where the rest of the house is at 8ft ceilings. I have tried changing the floor height of the upper level but it just changes my overall ceiling height of the lower floor to 8ft. 
       
      In the image I have my file with the pdf of the design below. You can see the beam going down the center (to the left of the stairs). The area to the left has 9ft ceilings with a gable roof above, and the area to the right has 8ft ceilings with another level above.
       
      How can I get the program to recognize I want to change the height over the stairs/part of the laundry/bedroom etc?
       
      Thank you!

      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.

      What am I doing wrong? In the physical based rendering, my recessed lighting doesn't look right. Also, the rope lighting under the wall cabinets are only lighting certain areas of the backsplash?

      Hello,
       
      I'm new to chief architect and I'm having trouble with this tricky sloped wall. For some reason this weird cut out that reflects the shape of the stair railings is showing up on the ceiling. If anyone has recommendations on how to fix this please share! Thanks
