Fixing an open space beneath floor.

Recommended Posts

I have this open space beneath floor that appeared once I had joined all exterior walls. I tried foundation settings but still doesn't seem to cover.  Can somebody help me with this?

Space under the floor surface is controlled in the room dialog box locally, globally per floor is controlled in Edit - Default Settings - Floor - Structure tab. Posting a copy of the plan or expose image will help clarify the situation for those who wish to help

there are way too many variable to guess from a pic    please post your plan file....close the plan while you do  it.

 

- your fascia and gutter are missing above your "hole" too

Not sure  why this happened, but I deleted and redrew the walls and they look OK now.

 

I've had similar things happen in my own plans.

if you put a wall break in the exterior wall where you added the addition , it fixes the wall hole

 

The roof needs a bit of raising and resnapping to get the two planes to meddle nicely and give your gutter back , the roof base line (RBL) is off the wall , so move it back in 1st , then adjust the top edge to meddle it nicely after raising the Roof plane to 85 1/4 inches 1st see pics.

 

  as noted    in the other thread you new kitchen ceiling is real low about 6'4" at the Lourved windows.

Thanks so much guys and thank you Mick,  I got the wall corrected and the roof base line as well.  As for the kitchen wall w/ louvers how do I go about raising that so that it flows with the slope of the roof and its not too low?

3:12 is about as low as you can go pitch wise , so your wall height is already at max  height and your roof still flow thru to the old roof.

 

only option ..........lower the floor ?  :(  

 

okay just joking :)  actually the only real choice is to continue the hip roofs all around the house if the client wants full height ceiling at the cheapest price. 

 

Actually I have to ask where the bathroom is ....?

Thanks Mick. The plan or house is actually a existing that I re-drew on HD so that I can generate a floor plan.  The client has applied for a loan through a local bank and the bank requires that it provide a floor plan along with a cost estimate for items to repair on the existing house.  Unfortunately, the owner does not have the original plans so that is why I had to redraw it. 

 

As for the bathroom, its a long story :).  But to make it short. The house is located near the ocean so the owner probably prefers going 'LOCAL' in the mangroves.  :D

 

Thanks again.
