Balloon framing from stem wall through 1st Fl. Top Plate? What's the trick?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've tried all the combinations of Platform Intersections under Wall Specification, Structure : selected the foundation walls and/or main walls and  tried toggling combinations of  Balloon Through Ceiling Above and or Hang Floor Platform Above on Wall, or Generate Between Platforms.

 

I can't get any to frame from top of stem wall through to the top plate on the first floor.

 

Does anyone know the correct approach to making this work?

 

Thanks for considering,

Barry

 

Latest Version.

 

PS, is it best to use the voodo on the lower wall or main floor wall in this case?  I tried it with both and either, but still nothing.

 

cheers!

OK, figured, it out.  Although my walls looked the same, the framing of my pony wall was a different dimension from the wall above.  I would not frame through because it's not the same wall

Good job.  That's what happens when you have the plan to look at ;-)
