    Strategy; roof or 2nd story walls first?

    Here's my house I built eight years ago, photo attached. Now I'm building it again, it's my Revit learning project. I've got the grids and levels set, slab in, ground floor walls and posts in.All the internal walls on the 2nd story slope at 47 degrees with the roof. Would you do the walls first like my actual building procedure or will the internal walls naturally trim to the sloping ceilings once the roof is added?

    It is really a matter of personal preference, either order you build them in you'll have to attach the walls to the roof to get them to trim to the slope.

    The house looks great BTW, although it is upside down.

      It is modeled relative to his location on the globe. :hide:

              Haven't done much in my Jeep....but I have gotten a HUMMV stuck in 5' of mud...hit a stream too fast and broke off every single blade on the radiator fan (Stream was deeper than normal...had to radio back to everyone else to slow down....three of us were stuck on the other side) and almost got a court martial when I was going up a steep clear cut, where all I could see was sky, and found the road. The three officers I was transporting got hot coffee all over them. They were ticked off until they saw me smiling. Who could yell at a Private when he is having lots of fun off roading?

                I hit a chunk of concrete in a parking lot with my Jetta and tore out the oil pan... I'm hardcore yo! :bb:



                p.s. Don't mess up the oil system on a TDI. New turbo's are really expensive.

                  When the OP comes back to read this he is probably going to wonder about all of us.

                  Ask about walls and a roof, get a conversations about off/on roading adventures. :laugh:
