Thanks for the resources list. One of my favorite phone apps for field measure is called Pitch Gauge. Super helpful roof pitch display if you can get your phone to reach a rafter tail. The other day I used it by reaching up with my clipboard to gain some height and then used the parallel edge to place my phone.

      The International Residential Code requires 21 inches of clearance in front of bathroom fixtures.  Can anyone tell me if doors are allowed to swing in to that space?

      I have a small renovation project. I have a  20/17 foot cottage that I want to add a second story for a couple bedrooms and a bath. I have an "as is" plan. Can anyone help?

      All this snow and ice got me thinking that we need some frost and frosted glass materials.
      You can download the stock textures as a ZIP file from my gallery here:
      Or I've attached a Chief Architect X7 CALIBZ file below.
