Gap Between Foundation And Wall

Recommended Posts

After I draw the walls and hit build foundation, when I view in camera view the foundation is there, but there is a gap between

it and the walls. How do I fix this problem?  I have just started using CX7

 

Sorry, not where I can send a picture today.           The wall is a standard sip, air space, and brick veneer. The foundation is 4'

tall concrete block faced with brick veneer on a 8" x 16" footing.

 

When I look at the plan in orthographic full overview every thing looks good except there is about a 2" gap between the foundation

and the wall all the way around. You can see through to the crawl space.

 

I have checked the wall specs., type definition, etc. I found an article in the knowledge base on resolving a gap between floors but

it did not help this. I know it is probably something easy I am missing.

is your framing on? I am thinking this is the space for the floor joists.

More details, plan or at least a picture please

We don't need a picture or a plan, we can guess...... Hmmmmmm. Do you think it is a wall def issue?

I would post a picture of what I am talking about but I will let you guess.

Actually I know the answer it is caused by the roof of the house 3 doors down.

OK, I'm having a similar issue.  Why are there spaces between floors?

yep looks like you have 1/2 a foundation currently ,so it needs a rebuild but your between floors issue is likely this one in the KB here

as for the OP's issue it sounds like the sill plate is missing/not displayed perhaps since it is a 2" gap.

I'm guessing you have your default floor system setup to 4" slab concrete instead of 11 7/8 framing. I'm guessing that's why the space between the first and second floor is only about 4". That's where I would look.
