Stripping building to the bones, framing completed to check for any areas

of concern, all is good, plans ready to send out, sleep good tonight. Plans

that work pay back high dividends in the form of word of mouth advertising.

  For the critical eye the elevated coffered ceiling beams are at the right height

the trusses did not follow the ceiling plane, just sayin.

Looks nice! I like working through bearing points, beam locations and other aspects of the framing. But, sometimes it does not model correctly. I wish we could control framing much more than we can. Would be way more realistic and easier to show specific framing details when needed if we could frame the model more closely to how it is actually done. Trusses and rafters do not always behave well.

I recently used the framing to show a client why a 3-0 door would Not fit at the end of a 3 ft wide hallway like he had designed it with his free CAD program.

Curious Steve, why you didn’t add lookouts to the main gable on the front of your design?

Nice! Very interested to see how you present the framing on the construction drawings.
