Floor/wall framing

Recommended Posts

I did auto frame and then cut a section "S10".  It shows the upper floor framing to my plumbing wall instead of the exterior wall.  The wall framing detail shows the exterior wall ballooning through to the upper ceiling.  Do I have to remove the plumbing wall to do the framing, turn off auto frame and then replace the wall?  Why did the floor not frame to the exterior wall?

Select the plumbing wall, make it a furred wall, then rebuild the framing.

On the structure tab, under double wall options, select Furred Wall.

 

EDIT:  Guess I was too slow.  Robert beat me to it.  I'll leave the post though as it describes HOW to make it a furred wall.

This is such a great question.  I think there are many ways to handle this.

 

I do not call it a furred wall,  I call that wall NO ROOM DEF. 

 

How should we do it?  Define the wall as a furred wall or a non room def?  I do not know.  Why  would I define the plumbing wall as either non room def or furr wall,  I do not know.

 

Michael if he has time might want to explore the different options,  or I will if I find the time.

 

Good question Mon Cherie.

If its a  " no room def"  wall then there won't be a very small room between the walls.

Thanks for the help everyone. I just got in from a client visit so will give these a try. This plan is a bit of a mess because the clients picked a contractor that wants scale drawings on 11x17 sheets. Everything I usually do is 1/4" and now I have convert these over to 1/8". What a pain:-(. Not as easy as I thought but they will be done soon.

Are you changing the PLUMBING WALL to a Furred Wall?  Should be no reason to delete framing.  And are you building the correct framing (Subfloor for Floor 2)?

Second try.. I changed it to furred and no room def. The rebuilt framing (F12) didn't work but when I used the "build framing" dbx and redid the subfloor for floor 2 it finally worked. I thought F12 would do this but obviously not.

I would of done it non room def only

Why? I don't know, but I think I would of got the same thing.

So we agree it should be non room def, The question is if you also Define it as furred, how does it behave differently?

I do not know..

I don't know either. It worked with those settings and I didn't want, or have time,to explore any more options. I'll maybe revisit it once the drawing is out the door.

      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

      I have designed a very large deck and the client wanted to take 2' off in one direction and another 3' in the other.  I have custom framed the deck framing per the engineer and don't want to change the framing.  The problem is that I need to rebuild the deck in order to not show the decking from overhanging the framing.  Is there a way to just rebuild the decking and not the framing of the deck itself. as you can from the rendering shown below you can see that the decking overhangs the decking.  Everytime I rebuild it it changes the framing per CA.

      I am having a difficult time with the framing of the rafters; in regards to birds mouth specifically. I am looking for assistance as I have tried many different options in aligning them to the beams. Please help me! I'd greatly appreciate it!
       
      Ps, I only began to notice the difference, when I changed depth of hip rafters to 3.5".

      I have created a number of different wall types to show proper dimensions (i.e. when one side of the wall is 5/8" Type X and the other side is 1/2" drywall) as well as to calculate the correct material counts and to show the proper information in the schedules.  Unfortunately doing that seems to have a down side...it changes the framing as if they were separate walls instead of the same wall with different materials on them.  I have seen the following side effects (colors refer to screenshots below):
       
      (Green Arrow) In unfinished rooms such as an attic storage space which only has a subfloor but no drywall, the walls get pushed up into the rafters by what appears to be 3". (Red Arrows) The floor joists and top/bottom plates are cut in the middle when they should be continuous pieces of wood.  In addition, you can see that the walls which are produced are not boxed at the end...the top & bottom plates stick out at the end. (Purple Arrow) Parts of the gable wall are not created.  In this case you could argue that it is not needed, but if a builder makes a wall he is not going to leave a hole in it. (Blue Arrows) An extra stud is added to a room that has no drywall, and therefore doesn't need nailer studs.  In addition, it looks like the other stud needed as a nailer for the finished room in the middle is missing from the plan view of the framing (see 2nd screenshot).  
      Am I doing this all wrong (creating separate wall types), or is there a way to use them and fix (any of) the issues I mentioned?
       
      Thanks in advance for any help!
       
      PS - I am a little surprised that the wall finish is not part of the room settings (like the floor & ceiling already are)...that would allow you to have continuous walls and still have different materials in each room (i.e. greenboard in the bath, 5/8" type X in a garage, unfinished in an attic, etc.
