    Siding direction

    Hello Everyone , I am designing a small shed to cover pool equipment and have Natural wood siding on walls and doors. My problem is that the siding installs properly on the walls (Horizontal) but on the doors it shows Vertical. How can I change it to Horizontal instead of Vertical. I can't seem to find the solution
  4. Hi Folks , I am having an issue with wall thickness on my foundation basement , the main basement (8' walls) I want to be 8" thick ICF with drywall on interior . The garage (4' walls) need to be 6" thick ICF with no drywall . I have already got it drawn with 8" walls throughout but the customer wants 6" on garage now. When I change the garage walls to 6" with no drywall Everything changes to 6" . I know this can be changed but just forget how , any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Changing sidings

    Hello everyone , I've got a likely simple issue that I can't figure out . I have a home , vinyl siding throughout but I want to change the siding on only the gable ends to a staggered shake but when I highlight the gable and change the siding to staggered shake all the siding changes on the whole house. How do I change just the gable siding. I know it is something simple I am missing. Thanks.

    Line Weights

    Here is a question for you all. What line weights do you use to print Detail Section views ? Mine almost always print really dark and I am wondering if there is a line weight most everyone uses to print nice and legible. Thanks

    using 2 computers

    Hello folks , a Question , I have HD Pro 2021 on my desktop and lap top . I prefer doing my plans on the desk top because it has a much larger screen but use the laptop to show the plans to clients. My Question: is there a way to link the program to both computers so any changes that are made on the laptop are reflected on the desktop and vise versa. I haven't been able to find a way if there is. Thanks.
  11. Please note that you do not have a sub floor installed on top of your joists . That gap is for the subfloor layer.
  12. I am contemplating getting Chief full version but thought I would check to see if anyone knew what will be added in Pro 2022 and if there is enough new things then maybe I won't need to spend the 2-3 thousand dollars to buy chief.

    Trusses

    David I realise we are not truss engineers but shouldn't both sides of a truss be the same , I think I have wall heights etc. the same or am I missing something. Thanks for your reply.

    Garage Door

    I guess Vertical Sections are Modifiable but not Horizontal door sections.

    Garage Door

    Thanks David , I do understand that but it just didn't look right on the plans and I thought we could change the number of panels in a dr.

    Garage Door

    I am doing a large garage that has an Over head Garage Door 20' wide by 12' high . How do I change the number of panels on the door from 4 panels to 6 in height . I can't seem to find how to do that. 4 Panels Just don't look proper and a 12' high door would have 6 panels not 4. Thanks.

    Detail's Download

    A Question , Where is the best website to get Residential Section Views and details that are modifiable to suit a particular plan. I have been searching and have found several but what do most of you use other than manually inputting the info. Thanks.

    Roof Strapping

    Yes I have tried that but it has to lay on top of the truss at the same angle as the roof . Like plywood on the roof.

    Roof Strapping

    2x4 strapping across the top of the roof trusses to receive the roof steel at the same 4/12 angle as the roof

    Cathedral truss

    Hello Everyone , I am just getting back to it after being sick awhile and my brain isn't functioning the way it should because I know this is easy but I can't wrap my head around it. I am just starting drawings for a Florida Room on the back of a house , the trusses will have a span of 22' with a 10" raised heel for insulation sitting on 2x6 framed walls. Outside pitch is 5/12 , inside pitch is 3/12 overhangs will be left long to be trimmed on site to match existing roof. I know I found a video on how this was done pretty much but can't remember where I saw it . Any help would be appreciated , Thankyou and take care.
