I can't figure out to make a roof/ceiling for this space. It is an existing attic space and I am doing a remodel and the ceiling slopes almost to the floor at the edges and I don't know know how to make it so it reflects this. I have attached a picture of the plan and some photos of the actual space.

I would start by creating a 2nd floor, with a ceiling height that equals the short knee walls (looks like between 24-30"), create the roof with the pitch to match the existing, then once the roof is in place, with the correct framing dimensions, 2x8, 2x10, etc., open the room dialogue box and un-check ceiling above this room. This should give you the cathedral/sloped ceiling you need. And as far as I know, this is the way every version of CA works :-)

I think I did it for Guy,  "the Norwegian"......  I was killing time before I started  working on a job that I did not want to do.

      Hello All:
       
      I am designing a house with all cathedral ceilings on the second floor. The idea is to have all the duct work etc exposed. In some areas I would like to do some sloped soffits for light fixtures. So the question is and it may be stupid is do i place everything on the attic level so that it is on the ceiling?
       
      Thanks 
      best

      I have a two level design for my home, with ceiling dimensions (structure and finish) the same on each floor, but anything I place on the ceiling on the ground floor (lights, fans, etc) seem to attach to the underside of the floor above and I need to manually drop the light/fans/etc by the height of the ceiling structureby specifying the ceiling offset on the object itself, otherwise the (flush mounted) lights don't appear at all, and the fans look like they disappear through the ceiling. I don't need to lower ceiling mounted items on the second floor. I'm an amateur at this, but I have been using CA for a while now and I don't recall it doing this previously.
       
      I have attached screenshots of the room structures for the ground and second floors.
