Attic Walls

Recommended Posts

I have completed a set of plans for a customer.  When meeting to get final approval, the customer decided they wanted gable walls.  When I select the wall and try the gable tool at the bottom, the roof changes but the wall does not fill in the gable end.  Do I have to build an attic wall in a second floor or is there a setting that I am missing?

Posting images is almost always helpful.

 

Are they missing in plan, camera, both?

Sorry.  I had to go back and learn how to screenshot.  I'm not sure how it would show up in the plan since it is part of or directly over the first floor wall.

Attic walls -- attic level.

 

Do you have attic walls set to display?

 

Do you have attic walls set to automatically build?

Are there no walls on the attic level? You can just manually draw them.

The Auto rebuild attic walls was checked.  There are no attic walls.  I have a vaulted ceiling in the living room and there is also no wall in the vaulted area.  I tried drawing the walls manually on the second floor but ran into problems there as well.  I will try again and report back with specifics.

I found the problem.  When I went to the second floor, the attic walls were indicated by a dashed line.  I had selected the walls before and thought I had reviewed everything but when checking again, I noticed that in the wall specification page, the "invisible" box was checked.  Thank you for your help Eric.

Posting the plan file is the best and quickest way to get help. 

 

Are there rooms on the 2nd floor? In your image above I see no stairs or windows.
