Ceiling starts at 8' wall height - follows rafter slope until it flattens at 10'

Recommended Posts

Adding addition to older home.  The structure is a straight gable roof with 8' outside walls on a 5.5 pitch.  The ceiling joists are raised to 10' off the floor and attached directly to the rafter.  The ceiling drywall is attached to the rafter until the 10' height and then attached to the ceiling joist.  Need to know how to set a ceiling joist higher than the wall height.

 

Working in HD Architectural 2018.

 

Thank You

Build the roof with the ceiling at 8'. Turn off auto rebuild roof if it is on and raise the ceiling to 10'.

Well that was just too easy.  Thank you so much.  Out of curiosity, i noticed that the crown follows the 8' height rather than the new ceiling line.  Don't need on this project, but might come up if someone sees this feed in the future.

Custom crown moldings are only available in Chief Premier, no Home Designer products can create custom moldings other than those attached to soffits (you make the soffit tiny so just the molding shows).
