Attic Help!

Recommended Posts

I'm designing a remodel for existing attic and I can't figure out how to recreate the current conditions.

 

The room has all four walls as exterior walls.

two walls are full gabled with a finished ceiling height of 8'

The other two walls are 6' with a partial cathedral ceiling with a 7/12 pitch to the finished ceiling.

 

So basically how do I create a 6' wall that then begins a cathedral ceiling for only a four foot run which then transitions to a normal ceiling with a height of 8'

 

I've been fooling around with this for hours and searching the knowledge base and I haven't found anything to re-create this situation.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks

Answers often depend on what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see mine for an example) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

I'll assume you are auto building the roof.

 

Set the 2nd floor (Attic) ceiling to 6'.

 

Build the roof.

 

Turn off auto rebuild roofs.

 

Raise the ceiling to 8'.
