    Stupid Question ?

    Ok, I know there are no stupid questions , just dumb people... so here goes, notice the the walls of the half bath under the stair are as they should be except for the back wall. I set the height of that wall at 5' 1". Notice the cut plane is set at 5'.
    it does not show in bold, how come?? i have tried every thing i can think of, can't figure it out...

    Wireframe turned on?

    Also, don't think that powder room meets code....

      hidden line, i built one a couple of years ago, not questioned by building inspector, but this is a different juridiction thanks for the warning.
      what makes it non complying in Idaho. why does'nt the wall show when it's higher than the cut plane?

        Cut planes don't cut walls less than 6' tall (I think that's the number, but 4' also sticks in my head). It's a Revit thing. why? I have no idea. :laugh: There's a thread about it here somewhere, but I can't find it.

        The workaround is to take the wall up to the floor above, and use a negative offset to get it back down to 5'-1". Let me know if that works.


        EDIT: HERE's the other thread. Also, I misspoke when I said cut planes don't cut walls less than 6'. It cuts them, but it uses the projected line weight, not the cut line weight.

          Residential code is different than commercial so I don't know the full code issues but the big one that jumps out at me is the door swing. That is a really awkward room with the door swinging in...

            Not to mention you have 5'-1" headroom at the toilet. I'd be smacking my head every time I needed to drop the kids off at the pool. :laugh:

            I'd throw a 30" pocket door in there, that'd help.

              One, the door doesn't fully open....two...there isn't enough room for a person to get in there and close the door... Perhaps a pocket door would work better if you have the height?

                First of all, Dan your solution works, why couldn't i think of it.

                On the other issue concerning the powder room workability, the one built previously works well. (the husband is about 6' 4", no compaints and believe me i would have heard about it if it didn't work, besides i tested it at the site before construction.) At the back of the w.c. 5' height gives you 6' 8" at the nosing of the w.c. which is plenty. In case you have not noticed you have to squat when you s_ _ t. The top of the door has to slope, i have not found a way to do a pocket door under the circumstances. As to enough room for an in swinging 2' 2" ,notice that you rarely swing the door more than about 50 degrees when going thru. Also the graphic indicates a deeper w.c. than we will use.

                Thank you everyone for your kindness in responding to my question......

                P.S. I have a steep stair, before you use my room size, of course check all your other parameters. BTW this is a tiny condo with no room.
