Changing Ceiling Finish

Recommended Posts

I'm new to CA. I'm using S-7.

I'm practicing drawing a plan with an open beam ceiling. I want the ceiling finish to be 1x6 T&G.

I can not get the ceiling finish to change from gyp. bd. to 1x6 T&G. Yesterday I was practicing

on another model with an open beam ceiling and 1x6 T&G ceiling. I had no problem changing the

gyp. bd. to 1x6 T&G. I made the change in the roof plane specification window then went to the

materials and changed the sheathing to wood plank. That worked. I made the same changes to the

new model I'm working on and I can not get it to change from gyp. bd. to T&G. Could someone let

me know what I am doing wrong. I've attached the file to this post.

Thank You,

Mike

I did not load the plan but I think you may need to open the dbx for the roof and tell it to have no ceiling.  You will then be able to see the roof framing and sheathing that you are specifying to be t&g.

Open the Roof Plane Specification dbx...Options panel...Roof Layers...uncheck "Has Ceiling".
