Version 2.2.9 - 08.06.2021
- Fixed a bug with framing, blocking and insulation for tee intersections for all wall types.
- Fixed a minor bug with six panel doors when the door vertical offset is a non-zero value.



This resolves the issue #3 noted in the recent mdkBIM tutorial.  I would highly recommend installing this latest update.

mdkBIM Tutorial 1: Modeling a Two Car Detached Garage (41:14 min.)

https://youtu.be/krXKVkebG4c

A few issues popped out during the making of this tutorial:

1.) Portal frame holdown placement, custom deletion and redundancy, feedback required.
2.) Wall copy tool did not copy the insulation option setting.
3.) The insulation algorithm seems inconsistent when dealing with tee intersections.

P.S. Problem #2 was not a bug it was because I checked the wrong checkbox.

There are a number of "swinging bridges" cable suspension foot bridges across mountain creeks. I have a soft spot for covered bridges if you need a real project.

Version 2.2.8 - 08.04.2021
- Fixed a bug with blocking and insulation for portal frame garage doors within rectangular walls.



Portal frames add a good deal of complexity to the framing, blocking and insulation.  Some of the details were not completely worked out previously.  I think I now have most if not all of these issues addressed. 

I also may need to spend some additional time on the holdown placement when multiple portal frames are adjacent to each other like in the example shown.

Where do I find the modified 16ft little house plans? Also, do the 16ft studio house plans still come with the Victoria’s Cottage plans? I can’t find them

Using a pontoon is another interesting idea.  I did a search for pontoon bridges and there are many amazing videos of military pontoon bridges getting set up and taken down. 

I guess you could create some kind of pontoon that is secured with cables to trees on both sides, and then lay planks or whatever.  Also had the idea of buying an old large equipment trailer, beefing up the tires to raise it a bit, and just backing it into the stream.   Or get and modify a shipping container that allows for water to flow through and drive over that.

Or maybe just wait until Amazon sells a $299 jet pack or drone that can carry you across....
