  1. Got it! Made the flooring 24" thick! That so funny! Appreciate the help Eric!
  2. Thanks Eric. I agree it is stupid. I love HD Architectural but after a month of heavy usage, I'm seeing a number of annoyances that continue to irritate me. I'm sure I have a lot to learn, but I'm pretty sure I'm doing most things correctly. I see the Pro version solve a lot of issues, but at $300 more, it isn't worth it. You suggested changing the thickness of the floor structure. In Architectural, you can not change the joist size, as far as I can tell. Is that what you were referring to?
  3. I have a problem with my plan! On the first floor, the family room and kitchen are set at 12' ceiling height. The rest of the first floor is 9' ceiling height (the Floor 1 default). The second floor built correctly on top of the first floor. The roof is correct. My problem is the Front Porch room height. I want it to be at 9", not 12'. It shares a wall with the first floor Family Room. When I lower the porch height, it lowers the Family Room as a whole. That messes up the second floor. Then the stairs don't align. HELP! This is driving me crazy. Chris O-plan Revised.plan
  4. Here's the plan. Thanks for the workaround katalyst777. sounds like a pain! Plan 4 slanted garage V2 - hip.plan
  5. Thanks Eric, but i don't have that option in Architectural 2016, as far as I can tell.
  6. I have several situations where the generated roof splits a wall. Part of the wall is inside (attic, storage room, etc.) and the rest is above the roof. When I apply drywall to the interior wall, the whole wall, including the exterior has drywall. If i apply siding, the siding also is inside the interior room. See attached picture. How can I have drywall inside a room, but not have it extend past the roof planes? I am using HD Architectural 2016.
