Interior Garage Wall


Recommended Posts



HD Pro 2014.


I'm building a 30'x50' garage/workshop with an interior wall to separate the building into two rooms.


I want a 12" stem wall around each room so that I can wash out the rooms with a pressure washer without soaking the walls.


When I add the interior wall it doesn't go to the slab; instead it hangs on the stem wall.


I tried changing the wall type to be a foundation wall, which seemed to help but the wall still doesn't reach the slab.


Also the door in the internal wall doesn't break the foundation part of the wall.


See attached Plan.

The simple way is to make your interior wall a Pony Wall with the lower part concrete.





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.

Thanks Eric.


I tried what you suggested... using a pony wall with the bottom concrete... and I got pretty much the same result. The bottom of the concrete wall sits on top of the outer stem wall. So, there most be some other subtle change that I'm missing.


Incidentally, I indicated that I was using HD Pro version 2014 in the first line of my post.
