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!

Hi Eric,

 

Thank you so much for the email and response! This is exactly what I needed. I found another video of yours that helped too - making the wall invisible in recording #1128.

      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.

      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

      Hello, is there a way to display the ceiling elevation (height) on plan view, as we typically show them on architectural drawings?
