Stem wall not centered on footing


Recommended Posts

Hey All,

 

I'm using Home Designer Pro 2021. I've had this happen in the past and was able to fix it after hours and hours of reading. This pesky issue has happened again and I cant remember how I did it for the life of me.

 

I have a 20"x8" concrete footing with ICF stem wall above. The stem wall is not centered on the footing. I think the part that is most annoying is what I am doing in the first place to offset it? On a majority of my plans it is automatically centered.  If anybody has any suggestions that would make my day.

 

I'm new to this forum so if more information or pictures is required I can do so.

 

Thanks!

*** I see you said Pro ***

 

 

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

Often a forum search will find an answer.

 

Searching for centered would be a good place to start.

 

Here is some info on searching:

Hey All,

 

Thanks for the information. As I get more familiar with this feed and how it works I will surely become more efficient at it, but we all have to start somewhere. I can imagine us "Hometalk newbies" flooding the feeds with generic questions is frustrating. 

 

Other drawings I have created on the 2021 software the stem wall was centered on the footing. I have a hunch it has something to do with my default settings because now if I start a new plan it's offset on the footing.

 

I have been playing around with the Wall Types definition and adding air gaps to each side and that seems to center it, but I feel like this is a mickey mouse way of fixing it.. This happened about a month ago and somehow I was able to fix it.....my stupidity for not retaining it lol
