Message: Cannot create a pier away from a wall.The information in this article applies to:
- Home Designer Pro
- All Chief Architect programs
Whenever I try to use the Round Pier or Square Pad tools, this message displays:
"Cannot create a pier away from a wall. Normally a pier is created under a foundation wall, which in this case can be called a grade beam."
What am I doing wrong?
The Round Pier and Square Pad tools are designed specifically to place piers under foundation walls and as a result, they cannot be used to place piers anywhere except under a wall.
If you need to place a pier or post that is not located under a wall, use the Slab tool and then modify the shape and height of the slab as needed.
