Carport & Garage wall set up

Recommended Posts

I've been asked by a client to design a garage for a house I did for him last year. He's run out of space for his toys and wants a garage with a carport attached. Easily enough done, but when I looked at the foundation around the semi-enclosed carport portion, the rim joist region isn't filling in. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong, how do I fill this part of the structure in? I've tried a "Solid" in this area and it passes, but the exterior layer of the wall on the outside just goes to ground....

Generally, to me, it looks like where a conc. curb would go. Check your foundation. If no curb, check your floor height in the garage

That was my first check Perry. I even compared it to a detached multi-bay I did in March in X-7, and it's the same settings. Anyway, not going to ponder this any longer. I've just created a new template in X8 specifically for garages. This should resolve the issue.
