Creating Porch Creates Strange Exterior Walls And Puts Gaps In Floors.

Recommended Posts

Hello! Forgive me ignorance this is my first project.

 

I’m creating a porch using the room divider tool (also tried the railing tool with the same result). After I use the room divider tool, I get these strange exterior walls above the porch. Then, when I change the room type to porch, it puts gaps in the floors. Something I’ve designed is preventing it from not building correctly. The only thing that’s really different is probably my floor heights:

 

Rough ceiling heights:

First floor: 109 1/8"

Second floor: 97 1/8"

3rd Floor (formed by roof): 85 1/2"

 

Any ideas what’s causing this problem?

 

(Attached are the files which are displaying in reverse order)

 

Image 3 shows after I change the room type to porch.

I've also attached my Chief file. 

 

Thank you for your help.

Not at my computer but it looks like you have roof over turned on in the structure dbx for that room (the porch) and those are auto attic walls.

Thank you! Auto attic walls, so that's what I'm looking at. I actually want a roof over the porch, that's why I was confused by the auto attic walls as the "Chic Cottage" tutorial doesn't show these. Now I know. However, once I actually draw in the roof planes Chief builds correctly. So, all is well.

FWIW, I don't think Room Divider is appropriate.  A "Post to Beam" railing wall would be my choice - and then simply specify the Room as a Porch.  Porches by default have a roof.

Joe,

 

Thank you! "Post to Beam" porch worked perfectly.
