I am looking for a solution. I have CA X10. I am fairly new to the software.
I have a old house I am trying to replicate on a plan. The first floor has 2"x7.75" floor joists that are connected directly to the sill plate which is a wood block 5.75"W x 7.75"H.
The wood block sits on top of a 8" CMU foundation wall.
There is a porch outside with the joists connected directly to the sill as well, BUT, it has a double rim joist (2) 2"x7.75"
I tried 2 things:
1. I set the foundation to have a sill plate of 5.75"W x 7.75"H. and the floor joists build on top of the sill.
Question 1: Can I tell the floor joists to build with the sill?
2. I set the foundation to have no sill and set the floor framing rim joist to 5.75"W x 7.75"H.
This worked accept for 1 thing BUT: when I build the porch outside it has a rim joist of 5.75"W x 7.75"H
Question 2: Can lock the framing for 1 or multiple rooms on a floor so when building new rooms on that floor they have different floor framing?
My solution is to set the foundation to have no sill, and manually place the sill on the foundation wall using a floor beam and build the floors.
Am I doing this all wrong or am I on the rite track?
Does anyone know of a good way to create a 2 story fireplace?
I've been struggling with this for a couple of days now, and have tried multiple options but haven't been able to create anything I was satisfied with yet. I've got a family room that is open to the room above, and I want to create a fireplace which extends to the ceiling of the room above. The closest I came to a working solution was defining the fireplace chase as a room and changing the height of the ceiling there, but that also causes another (exterior, unconnected) wall in the living room to change ceiling heights, screwing up door and window placements on that wall, and I'm sure more problems to be uncovered down the road.
My plan is attached.
I'm using X9 on windows 10 64 bit.
I'm having a very troublesome problem where anytime I modify a wall definition I cannot seem to create a room!
Please see the attached plan. I'm working in X9. I created a new wall definition by copying the exterior siding-6 wall type.
I've drawn an enclosed space, but cannot create a room to define the space!!
Any help or advice is much appreciated. Has anyone else run into a similar problem?
