Walls Extend Below Floor

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

 

I'm a new hobbyist using Premier X7, so please forgive the absences of industry jargon.

 

I'm trying to create a shed and when I complete the shed outside walls, the two, last placed walls, extend below the floor. Any ideas why?

It looks like you have not built your floor framing. Your walls are dropping down to cover the framing set in your defaults. Build the floor framing and it will make sense.

 

Cannot say why it's just 2 of the walls.

 

It's often good to post the plan too.

Post the plan please, but try this. Open wall dbx/go to structure tab/default wall height.

Some walls are backwards and they don't have finish on one side.

If you care to see walls that really extend below the floor take a look at this one. Tech Support has been working on this one for me forever now but if anyone else has seen this or cares to comment please do.

Can you attach that plan?  I'm really curious.

All good there Scott, Do you think maybe the bricks are too heavy?

Yes I have checked all the foundation walls now and none have "floor hangs on wall" checked.

This is how the wall above (as viewed from the outside) keeps framing. I know that I can manually straighten and reframe it but I would really like to know what is causing this. I think it must be somehow related to the foundation because the sill plate is sinking into the masonry at the same angle and I think there is no way to edit that. Strangely enough the subfloor does not follow this pattern. The adjoining wall on the left (of the Wall framing Detail) is also affected in a similar way but not the other two.

I think I'm just out of my league here. I could probably build it faster in Maya...just don't know this software well enough. I've watched many, many tutorials, but perhaps there is a book that would be a better training tool?

 

I have attached the file here.

1.  Change the Wall Type so that:

  a.  The Foundation is built to Layer 3, not Layer 1

  b.  The Bead Board Thickness is at least 7/16" - currently you have it set at 0"

2.  Build the Foundation. 

 

Here's a pic with Foundation and Roof

      When I place a window/door/etc. on a wall and type in the dimensions, sometimes it will move the edge of the wall instead of moving the window along the wall. (ie: if I have a 20' wall with a window on it, I want the length between the corner and the window to be 4'... instead of moving the window over on the wall, it will just extend the edge of the wall out past its original point so it's now 24'). Please help!! I'm not sure how to look up this issue so if there's a video on it already please direct me there!

      I have watched the video of ChiefSkills by Steve Nestor, "DORMERS - Auto and Manual Types"
      Trying to use the idea there to cut my walls out of the living space. I think you called it "Cheek Walls".
      See the real picture and the angled ceiling. That is what I am trying to do.
      Any thoughts?

      Hi, I am a Revit user converting to Chief. 
      When working with angled walls in Chief, I have not been able to lock a wall from moving when changing dimensions on connecting walls. 
      I am familiar with how to use the directional tools to move an end of an object to adjust its dimensions.
      When angled walls are off-angle, I can waste significant time adjusting the lengths of the angled walls and still not achieve the dimensions I need for all connecting walls.
       
      The use case scenario is when I am drafting a plan using dimensions provided to me to create the build.  
      Of course, if I was creating a plan from scratch, I could probably avoid this situation.  
       
      Any suggestions?

      The wall shown is on the same plane with a false gable roof above only a portion. The wall from the interior will reflect the same ceiling height as the rest of the home, but from the front elevation I would like the wall to be taller to move my gable up. How can this be done in CA as the wall heights are dictated by the room's ceiling height?
