Deck Framing Not Framing Right

Recommended Posts

I'm new to CA,

 

I was following along with the new deck video on CA website. When I do the deck framing it does not frame right.

In the video it comes out correctly.

 

We are adding a deck to a one story raised foundation house. The house is already framed. When I generate the

deck framing the rim joist of the house is moved back to the inside face of the stem wall. The deck floor joists are

resting on the sill plate of the house and the house floor joist are now off of the foundation. In the video the house

rim joist remain where it should be (aligned with the outside face of the stem wall) and the deck floor joist are hanging

off of the house rim joist.

 

Does anyone know how to correct this?

 

Thanks,

 

Mike

Attached is the plan I was working on. You can see that where the decks are attached to the house floor framing that the rim joist is pushed back to align

with the inside face of the conc. stem wall. They should be aligned with the outside face of the stem wall. The house floor joist are now not sitting on top of

the sill plate. The new deck floor joist are now sitting on top of the sill plate. The deck joists should be hanging off of the rim joist.

 

 

Thanks,

 

Mike

Mike,

 

Here is a copy of your plan. If you look you will see that the room needs to be set to deck for the framing to be correct.

The Balcony Room setting was causing the framing to not generate correctly. If you reconnect it and build the framing again you will see what I mean.

Use the anno set - (framing) to view the framing on the 0 basement floor level.

  • Thanks Mike for your answer. But in the training video Manual Frame Deck he is using the Balcony Room settings.

    He was doing this to demonstrate how to put in the support posts and beams manually. In his video the rim joist of

    the house stayed aligned with the outside face of the stem wall. When I follow along with the video my rim joist is moved

    back and aligns with the inside face of the stem wall.

     

    Thanks,

     

    Mike

      Hi, could someone check the attached plan. For some reason when I switch to Perspective framing overview, my layer set does not change with that, it stays as floor plan layer set. I spend a lot of time to figure out. Gave up. I know I can change the layer set to 3D framing layer set. But why it does not change by default. Could someone let me know where is the settings for that? Plan file attached for reference

      I am trying to figure out if there is a way to make a framing schedule for the entire project, and not just wall by wall. 
      We are finding that framing schedules do a better job listing out the members and sizes then the material lists. 
      Thoughts/suggestions?

      I think I asked this before but can't remember the answer.
      The wall surrounding the Open Below room frame down into the floor area where I have a floor truss.
      Is there a setting that stops this extended wall? I have in the past just modified the framing in the wall detail but would like a better solution.
       
      Thanks

      Hello, I am trying to put together a floating deck on top of a roof patio. As soon as I draw the deck it cut a hole in the roof slab. How can I achieve to show the deck?
