This may seem like a dumb question, but I can't seem to figure it out. I'm trying to measure the total height of a structure I designed (from the floor of the first floor to the tip of the roof). The CAD tools are helpful for taking 2D measurements (width and depth), and I can see height information for rooms in the room specification box, but I don't see any tool that tells me the total height of the structure, including the roof.
Can anyone point me in the right direction on this one? Driving me crazy, as I am working with some vertical restrictions.
Many thanks in advance!
I am wondering if there is an easy way to change the height of a current 2nd floor level. During my initial measurement of an existing home, I thought the floor joists were 2X12's but in actuality they are 2X10's. Now after discovering this during the construction process I need to make a few corrections but without the correct floor height it is making it challenging. My question to you all is, is there and easy way to change the height of the second floor all at once without having to go into each room and change the floor level?
How do I stop Chief Architect from changing multiple rooms/levels when I change the ceiling height of one room? On a split level house, if I change the height of the kitchen, all the walls on the adjoining level drop to the height of the kitchen wall. So the kitchen wall is 9 feet, and the bedroom walls are 5 feet. If I change the bedrooms back, the kitchen wall becomes 14 feet tall. The kitchen isn't even touching the exterior wall between the two levels. I've tried room dividers to separate the two. I've only had the program for a couple weeks, and I'm at a standstill.
