I'm trying to create an as-built with the porch as shown on the photo on the right (in the screenshot attachment). I've got the upper porch and ramp in place but can't get the lower porch to drop 16". I thought it would be as easy as adjusting the room floor down 16" but that doesn't seem to work. I've attached the PLN file (zipped X14). Any input on how to do this would be welcome.
I need to add depth to my 2x8 rafters for insulation depth (12" for R-38). Shown is a purlin added to the ROOF PLANE ceiling finish. Is there any way to create a 2x furr-down that is aligned with the rafter but is non-structural?
We finish attic spaces often so it would be great to find a way to represent this correctly.
Thank you for any help you can give.
I am wondering how I can set up my foundation walls and main floor so that I can have a slab on one part and a framed floor on the other that flush out at the same level.
But I would like the top of the ICF foundation walls to have a double sill plate with the concrete poured inside of that where the slab is and the other side would have accommodations for the framing to come out at the same height. I have a simple plan attached and some cross section details of how the top of foundation wall would look.
I know I can just build it with the slab at the same level as the house and then just have these detail drawings included in the plan but I am wondering if there is a way to actually have Chief build it this way?
