Different exterior wall intersections


Recommended Posts

I am creating a permit set of plans from my design, and am curious about a couple of exterior intersections that are doing some funny things. I have different types of exterior walls- a 2x8 wall ties into an 18" thick straw bale wall. And at the corner, I would like the 2x8 wall to run all the way through. I've tried several times to pull the walls back and make the 2x8 run longer, but it always defaults to the situation in the picture.  And where there is a porch  on the outside, it gets weirder still. I've checked the foundation walls, and they seem to line up.  Any way I can manipulate this to have the 2x8 wall run past the straw bale wall in plan view?   Theres also the intersection of the exterior wall and the storage room. I realize the program recognizes "storage" rooms as interior, but I'd like to remove that line at the corner of the 2x8 and 2x4 wall.  (Would love to have the foundation footings follow this exterior wall too, but I'll post that separately!).

Thank you!
