Cape Cod 2nd Floor Ceiling

Recommended Posts

I am trying to create a Cape Cod home with Home Designer Architectural. I can't seem to get the 2nd floor ceiling so that the dashed lines formed by the ceiling/roof plane intersection are the correct distance apart. CA tech support says I need to create the roof resting 1" above the 2nd floor flooring.

 

I can get training from CA, but I must first pay $300 to upgrade to Home Designer Pro, then pay $125/hour & then wait at least two weeks for the training schedule to open up.

 

I am trying to get the distance between the rooflines on the 2nd floor ceiling to be 16' 0". The first floor dimensions are 50' long by 30' wide, Gable roof on the 30' walls. Specs are simple... attaching a sketch made in Adobe Illustrator and my plan file.  I don't know why this so should be so hard to do.

That intersection point is moved in various ways. Ceiling height, wall height, ceiling slope, roof structure and where the roof intersects the wall. All need to be correct, and your PDF does not have all the required dimensions.

It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click My Settings, then Signature on the left.

I raised the roof planes 10" and was close. Note how the roof is resting more on the top of the second floor deck.
