One side of cathedral ceiling disrupted abutting extension


Recommended Posts

Home Designer Architectural 2021- Build 22.3.0

 

Greetings- hesitated to post what is something I should have been able to figure out but see that others struggle with roofs as well. In attached file in "Kitchen/LIving room", there is a cathedral ceiling. The side over "Living" draws correctly but side over "Kitchen" is interrupted by roof framing from extension "laundry/Entry" extending into "Kitchen".

For reference trying to redraw architects drawing into HD so I can work on interior layouts.

Appreciate any help...probably goes without saying that I've spent hours and hours trying to figure this out on my own.

*** I see you said Architectural 2021 ***

 

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.

The only way to fix that (with Architectural) is to cover it with a sloped soffit.

 

I recommend adding the soffit on the attic level, then lowering it to where it needs to be.

Putting it on the attic level prevents it from blocking your doll house view of that area.

Hi Solver,

Sorry about leaving out this image but thought the other two would be more helpful. I did try Jo_Ann's solution but not able to get that to work without it moving other walls/roof planes. If this image helps with any other suggestions, that would be great.

Thank you,

Scott

(BTW- I did select in Settings to show my signature but don't see it here)

This image shows the problem clearly, better than words, and eliminates the need to download the plan.

A soffit should have no effect on these items and is the standard way of dealing with this problem.

 

Here is another way.

The sloped soffit works.  You're just not doing something right.

 

You also have a big problem with the new walls you defined.

Hi Jo_Ann,

Thanks for follow up note. I have no doubt that the sloped soffit works, but I am not able to make it happen. This is my first HD project so everything is new. Would it be possible to let me know what you mean by "You also have a big problem with the new walls"? Appreciate you taking the time to help.

Hi Solver,

Very generous of you to spend time creating that YouTube. Went through it once to see how to do it (and will update my model later today) but you used several menu items that I am not familiar with and will now take the opportunity to explore those and learn.

Many thanks,

Scott
