Attic Space

Recommended Posts

I have a drawing for a single floor home on a slab.  How do I work in the attic space to place things like HVAC and Attic Fan?

You may need to create a 2nd floor, with a room definition of Attic.

 

I'd test in a simple, one room plan first.

You will have to create a 2nd floor and then lower the ceiling height, and uncheck ceiling for this room.

Creating a second floor to serve as unfinished attic space additionally requires you to name that space via the Room Specification Dialog as "Attic" which will change the floor joists for that space to 2x6's. Otherwise the software will give that add that space to area a living area calculation and make the floor joists as thick as the other floors. just keep in mind that room names are also programing commands.
