Gable Windows

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this is a duplicate, thought I posted yesterday but can find my post....

Anyone got any tips to place traplites or other high windows? I always struggle getting windows to display above the plate line of a room with a vaulted ceiling.

I balloon frame walls thru to roof, add ceiling planes at roof pitch, tried removing headers from opening, manually adjusting headers, the list goes on and on....

Not at my computer right now to check this, but have you tried simply using control to override the snaps? Also, what are the structure settings in your room DBX with regard to the ceiling?

Probably a good idea to just attach the plan for a better answer.

Well, I have ceiling off, ceiling structure checked or unchecked, either a manual ceiling plane or no ceiling plane, walls set to balloon through or not, openings set to have a header or not.

Odd that I can just slide windows up and down in the entire gable wall.

I don't think you are going to get this answered without a plan because it works fine for me.

Well there's the answer right there, thanks :)

Just knowing it's me\plan\settings specific is a huge help.

I'll shoot it over to CA tech support, thanks again.

I'm guessing you know this, but they're probably gonna need to see the plan too.
