    Exposed osb on ceiling corners

    Well I'm thinking it's because I don't know what I am doing. I thought 'use soffit surface for ceiling' meant that the ceiling would follow the roof framing instead of a flat ceiling. Thank you for solving the mystery. Very much appreciated on this busy day. Angie

    Gable roof not working properly

    Thank you! Thank you! Also thank you for the roof tutorial link. I will definitely be watching them. Roofs seems like the hardest part of drawing plans, to me anyway.

    Gable roof not working properly

    Ha! Yes Eric, that is what I am trying to do. I've watched and rewatched the roof instructional videos. What they say to do is not working. I'll continue playing around. But I really need more instruction than what is given. I completely started over drawing the plans incase that was the problem. If you know of other great manual roof videos other than than what is listed under Home Talk I would be very grateful. (I've also read and watched so many roof posts on this forum, but I definitely could have missed some. I want to learn. Thank you, Angie Robshaw

    Gable roof not working properly

    Probably the title should read "I'm not installing the roof properly"..... Anyway, I've watched Beginning Roof Deign and Advanced Roof Design. I've built and rebuilt according to the instructions but the roof is never fully functional, either missing attic walls it won't seem to let me add , or not building framing. I've included pictures of what I'm trying for and an example of my failure to produce. The main gable doesn't respond to the gable roof tool. Also the porch roof which is at a much lower pitch does not respond by the instructions in the videos. I can force it, But I know it's not structurally right. Currently I just deleted the whole roof and let it auto rebuild the default roof settings. Any wisdom is greatly appreciated. Thank you, Angie Blake_3.plan

    Need to lower 1st floor ceiling height

    Eric, That went way faster than anticipated, I guess I learned more than I thought. I'm a bit afraid to submit this for fear that I have missed a bunch, but I "think" I have it except the cedar siding over exterior right side wall doesn't go all the way up? I've deleted and redrawn with no luck. Also, I do not know how to move level 0 up to level 1, so I left it as it was. I followed a tutorial for building a house on beams. I was afraid I would mess it up if I started playing around with it. Thank you for your help Eric. I will show your bathroom suggestion to the client. Angie Jeter Small Restart.plan

    Need to lower 1st floor ceiling height

    Ughh! Start over? Maybe that is best. But the hours of blood, sweat, and tears..... ;o I will take your advice, since what I am trying is not working. Thank you Solver

    Need to lower 1st floor ceiling height

    I need to change the first floor ceiling height from 10 ft to 8 ft. When I try and change it thru defaults, 1st floor ceiling height, it only lowers the middle section of the house and strange things happen to the remaining floor sections all around. What is the better way to do this? Jeter, Justin, smaller living room.plan

    How to adjust roof height with a shed roof.

    Ok, Progress. Your method worked great for the interior walls. I did have to change the wall setting to "balloon through walls" to get it to work. However when I tried it on the exterior walls crazy things started happening. One wall shot thru the roof. Another, when I deleted it auto rebuilt a wall across the living room, when I tried to delete it more strange things happened. I ended up backing out of everything I tried and leaving the exterior walls as they were. Question : Ideas on what I have wrong on the exterior walls? Question: I can't find where my soffit setting are located, other than the cabinet soffits. Can you direct me? Question: When you use the invisible wall method to check the relationship between the soffit and the roof plane, which view is best? I was using the cross section elevation tool. And Question: Do you know if you or someone offers tutoring? I think I could learn much faster that way. Hopefully

    How to adjust roof height with a shed roof.

    Jo_Ann, I really appreciate all the help. I didn't realize dragging the walls was a no-no. Also didn't realize about the Auto Build walls feature, I'm very excited about this. I'm learning my way thru this. Wish I could take a class. The attic walls, I don't know how they got there, but there is not supposed to be an attic, the ceiling is the roof line. I tried and tried to delete them but they remained. I accidentally went up a floor and there they were, I was finally able to get rid of them. The roof help is phenomenal, I limped my way thru to get it mostly right. I will implement all of the changes you recommended. I did figure out that I could use the cross section/ elevation tool to get the wall height of both ends of the house. God Bless your Day, Angie Question, to get the roof dimensions, did you use Eric's Trigonometry method or another way? I would like to learn how to do it confidently myself. Unfortunately Erics idea of "simple trig" isn't simple to me. I know I can learn it with more instruction, but I wondered if there was another way. I did go back and do what you said on the walls. Unfortunatly, every time I draw in a wall, it adds that pesky attic wall back in. I turned off Auto build attic walls, but it's still happening.
