Raised frame floor over slab

Recommended Posts

In real life I have a 12 x 24 room on a monolithic slab with ceiling height of 10'.  I want to add an interior wall creating a 6x12 and an 18x12 (less wall thickness of course) and raise a framed floor in the 18x12 by 2' (which reduces the ceiling height by 2' accordingly).  Everything I've tried in HDPro to create a raised frame floor in the larger room results in either the monolithic slab being changed and/or the top plate height of the 12x24 room being changed (neither of which I'm doing in real life).

Anybody got a solution (and don't say ditch the software and draw it from scratch on a piece of paper!)?

Please take a minute and fill out your signature -- see below. Knowing what software you are using is often key to providing a suggestion. I do see that you have Pro, but having that info in your signature makes it easy to find, and available in every one of your comments.


 


Why are you doing this? Are you drawing plans to submit to someone, etc.


 


Posting your plan file is the best way to get a good answer. More Reply Options button below, make sure it's not open in Pro.

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.

You would thicken the floor platform by way of that room's specification dialog-structure tab-floor structure layering it as you desire.

I do not understand this statement in terms of a question, you just draw and dimension the wall, nothing arcane there.

 

I also agree with Eric that a signature and concise statements of your questions are prefered.

@Mark -- Almost always best to start a new thread, even with similar problems.

 

Please delete this post (under Options just above your signature), and start a new one.

 

I'll be considering the options and will add my response to the new thread.
