Why Is My Whole Building Now Defined As A Room?

Recommended Posts

check your wall connections


move them away a little then reconnect

I would highly recommend making the "Interior" wall part of the "Exterior" wall definition.


You'll have some corner connections to clean up, but it will be much nicer in the end...and on top of it, your rooms are all individual now.

Your plan has some random room divider walls and some other bad wall connections. If you remove these random room divider walls and clean up your wall connections, it will probably behave much better.

Also, I noticed that you turned off "Connect Island Rooms" in your general wall defaults. I don't recommend doing this until you completely understand how to always keep your walls properly connected.  Turning this on also fixes the problem with bad rooms.

      Hello all,
      It has been some time since I last asked a question as I don't get to use this software very often in my business we mostly remodel condos.
      I have a bunch of cabinets all designed in Chief and was wondering if there was a way to generate a cut list of parts that go into building those cabinets with Chief??
      It would be such a time saver if this was possible. They are frame-less cabinets and a few are custom sizes.
      Your help would be greatly appreciated.

      Gang, I apologize in advance if this was already addressed here, but I couldn't find it.
      Often, I am asked to build an addition on a deck-style foundation.  Is there a simple way to do this that doesn't take forever?  I can manipulate the software to eventually do what I want, but there has to be an easier way!

      I have a basement with a safe room. The ceiling is 10' high in the basement. I only want to drop the ceiling in the safe room that is in the basement down to 8' and keep the basement ceiling at 10'. Seems every time I try to do this it messes with the foundation and raises it. Not finding any videos on this. Or is it just as simple to turn a soffit into a ceiling???
      There has to be a simple step by step solution to this.

      I cannot get this shelf ceiling to behave. I have tried everything I can think of. The bathroom itself is vaulted. There is a water closet that also has a shelf ceiling but that one is perfect. I tried to match every parameter of that room to this one but nothing works. I have two ceilings to make things worse!!! ALso that horizontal band between the lower and upper walls just appeared as well!!! HELP ME PLEASE!!! Thanks.
