I keep seeing the following error message in one of my plans. What does it mean?
"A roof overhang may intrude too far into a wall on floor 1."
This warning message displays when a roof plane overhang is extending into a wall in your plan rather than butting against the wall's surface. When this occurs, you may see unexpected results in 3D views, such as a wall that does not generate upward to its full height or unwanted roof surfaces in interior rooms.
To solve this problem in Chief Architect or Home Designer Pro, you need to locate the roof plane in question and edit its shape so that it no longer intrudes into the wall.
Click OK to close the error message, then locate the problem roof plane. Select this roof plane and use its edit handles to move the edge that extends into a wall back so that it just touches the exterior surface.
If you continue to encounter this error message after editing the roof plane, other roof planes with the same problem are present in your plan. Locate them and repeat this process.
