Cape Style Roof Rafters on Floor instead of Top Plate

Recommended Posts

When I set up my cape style roof, the rafters are generated so that they are resting on the top plate.

 

I'd like to have them resting on a 2x4 that's been nailed into the 2nd story floor (or, if that's not possible, on the floor itself).

 

It seems like I need second story wall that only consists of a bottom plate. Is that possible?

Build the 2nd floor with 1-1/2" rough ceiling. That will get you close.

 

I added the bottom plate shown in red manually, but there may be a way to get it to build automatically.
