Sloped ceilings


Recommended Posts

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 am working in this file and the basement ceilings / main floor joists above have disappeared. I checked to see layers are on and now I am at a loss as to why they aren't showing up. I know they are they there because I can see the gap where floor joists should be. 
      Any insight or help would be appreciated!

      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?
