Wall intersection issue


Recommended Posts

This is for an as-built drawing for a condo unit.  I did a simplified plan to illustrate the issue.  It feels like it should be solvable with the wall intersection options, but I must just be too dumb to figure it out.


Drawing 1: note the dropped entry.  I did this by creating the entry space with the as-built interior wall and an invisible wall and dropped that room 39" relative to the rest of the plan (0" is the first floor level, entry is -39").  I know I could do this using the technique described in KB-00269 - Creating a Split Level Entry, but I've had better success with the rest of my plan by doing it this other way.  I can provide more details on why, if you need them.


Drawing 2 illustrates the problem.  This condo has a cantilevered living room.  When I pull back the foundation wall to create the cantilever, you can see some of the framing and a gap to the lower left of the door.  I have experimented with the wall intersection options but could not get that to go away. I've also tried doing things in different orders (do cantilever 1st, then drop entry, etc.)  The best I could do was by turning on "Balloon through ceiling above" for the foundation wall, which got rid of the gap, but left the framing (see drawing 3).



I've attached the simplified sample plan too. Probably wouldn't care as much if it wasn't right next to the front door!

Any help appreciated. HDPro 2020, Win10
