Placing A Window Under A Roof Plane Baseline

Recommended Posts

I am attempting to place a window in a wall underneath the roof plane baseline of a cross gable roof.

The tool seems understands that there needs to be a structural support at this point in the wall, and will not allow me to place the window in that location.

The reality is that this cross gable will likely be over framed above the main gable, so wall support structure in this location will not be critical.

I have tried using the command key override (mac) for placement, but no success.

 

Is there any way to override chief's respect of the wall structure and place the window in this location?

Thanks.

so removing the roof plane and then placing the window doesn't work either ?

 

you will likely get a faster answer if you post the plan so others can look at  it.

Jeff,

 

Chief does not do structural analysis.

I doubt that it the roof baseline preventing the window placement - although I could be wrong.  :mellow:

I have no trouble placing a window under a baseline.  

I suspect that there is something else going on.

 

My best guess is that you have broken the wall at that point.

 

Best to post the plan.

that was my thought too though I can't see it but that looks like the spot the gable would start up so need to be broken ,btw that small roof plane appears to be badly formed  (double lines).

Thanks guys.

It was indeed a wall breaks that were placed to create a full gable wall during the initial roof build.

Moved/eliminated the breaks, and window placement went smoothly.

 

And yes, one of the roof planes needed clean up. Done now.

 

Thanks.

      I'm using X11 premier on a mac -- I have an exterior garage wall (with a centered garage door) and a gable end -- I'd like to split the attic wall of the gable end into 3 parts -- the central region above the garage door, and the left and right, to have a different material above the garage door.

      I have Default Settings > Roof > Auto Rebuild Roof set to Off
      I have Default Settings > Framing > Automatically Build Floor and Ceiling Framing Off on all framing types.
      I have Default Settings > Walls > General Walls > Auto Rebuild Attic Walls set to Off

      If I delete the roof and ceiling planes with Build > Roof > Delete [X] and then use the Build > Roof > Build Roof ... dialog to rebuild the roof and attic from scratch -- I leave the Auto Rebuild Roofs set to Off, to be clear -- and then edit the resulting gable roof on the attic layer, I can split it twice to produce the three separate wall sections, but once I change the exterior material on any of the sections, the three wall segments get replaced with a single wall again.  The new wall has my selected material, but that does me no good as I need the distinct secgments.

      Anyone know what setting do I need to turn off to maintain the manually edited gable end?  Or is this a mac bug?

      Or, barring that, does anyone know what approach will let me give the desired finish detail (attached a pic of a freehand elevation)?

      So I've drawn up a deck on a second floor but the framing is showing up on the floor below. I feel like I am missing some small detail but I can't figure this one out.

      Having an issue with wall framing height. Never had this before and have recently upgraded to X11, so wondering if it's operatior error or the program, etc. Anyway here goes:
       

       
      This shows exactly what happens. The wall framing does not go up to support the plate height.
       
      Have checked the following to no avail:
       Verified ceiling height was accurate
       Wall is marked 'baloon through ceiling above' so we're not talking about a hidden attic wall messing this up - the wall actually does go up to the rafter - just the framing does not.
       
      Any insights?
