Variance Between Doll House and Framing Views

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to design a barn-style structure with 16' walls on the perimeter.  The interior walls will only be 9';  picture an office structure in a warehouse.  The E, S, and W walls of the barn will form three walls of the residence;  the fourth wall will be a 9' wall basically bifurcating the building.  South of that wall will be the residence;  North of the wall will be a high-clearance garage.  When I view either of the dollhouse views (perspective or orthographic), the plan displays what I envisioned.  I would say it displays correctly but, given that I'm a complete neophyte with this software, that would be a bit presumptuous.  When I display either of the framing views, however, the ceiling at 9' and what would be the second-story floor extend the entire width of the building. 

 

This was drawn using a single-story building and 96" shelf ceilings in the residence.

 

In my former life two presentations of the same drawing reflecting different results was not a good thing.  However, this may be ESO . . . equipment superior to operator.  Is this the correct approach to doing walls of differing heights or should I have treated this as a two-story building and worked through the problems I ran into with that form factor?  That was:  I had to leave the second-story portion of the divider wall in place and make the "second story" of the garage "open below" or the floor would extend to the N wall.  Essentially the same problem but it displayed that way in both dollhouse and framing views.  And, since it's just the one wall rather than a room, I couldn't figure out a way to reduce the height to make it large enough to stop the ceiling from extending but small enough to not exist.

Reset your default ceiling to 96" (in defaults).

 

Edit>Reset to Defaults

  Choose Ceiling Height

 

Raise the garage ceiling to 196".

Well, that makes a lot more sense than changing each.  and.  every.  room.  to the 96" height.  :)  But . . . it still displays one way in dollhouse (i.e. tall garage) and the other in framing.  I'll get with support on Monday.  Thanks for the help, @Solver.

Did you uncheck Flat Ceiling Over This Room in the Garage?

I hadn't done that.  And you're correct;  that did it.  Thanks, again.  See . . . it WAS ESO!!   :)
