How to draw converted attic in HD Pro 2021

Recommended Posts

Hi All

 

Using HD Pro 2021

 

I finished basement and 1st floor, now I need to layout the interior of the attic. As you can see from attached the pix, it has knee walls and a vaulted ceiling with collar ties

 

The roof goes all the way down to the original hip walls (i.e. first floor ceiling). The current attic in HD has no ceiling or floor. When I add a half wall for one of the knee walls I get a message saying I probably want to add another floor, but not sure how, as the wall height at the exterior is actually 0"

 

How should I do this?

 

Thanks

 

Mark

You need the 2nd floor. Have you added one to see what happens?

 

Are you using manual or auto roofs?

Thanks for quick reply. I'm using auto roofs. Added a second floor with abs ceiling height same as floor. Seems to have added more brick for new joists, but it's got sistered joists

Manual roofs would be simpler, but review these options to get the roof to build where you want.

I added some interior walls and they are a few inches high. Seems like I need Open above or something
