  2. Hello - I have a floor plan and I'm looking for someone that has a lot of experience and creative genius to design a roof. This isn't some easy/simple layout. The second photo is the roof design of a very similar floor plan. I have various roof designs that I'm willing to share, but I'm looking for some fresh ideas. If you have experience with roof designs, please let me know how much you charge/hr.

    Car porch

    I'm using the Home Designer Suite 2022 for a new house project. The house is fairly simple (30' x 30') single storey. To this house, I want to add a car porch (16'X 20') with a pitched roof attached to the house's roof. What do I need to do to add posts that will support this structure? What do I need to do to show pavement on the ground under that roof? Thanks

    Very thick walls

    People in places like the UK have this problem. Play with your wall definition. Doors and windows go in the main layer.

    Foundation walls

    I have a house that has a full basement and crawlspace plus a garage. How do I get the foundation walls to be different heights. I tried breaking a wal and have one at one height and the other at a different height but home Designer keeps making the walls the same height.

  15. I utilizing Home Designer Suite 2022. When I go to pull up a perspective view render the image display is presented. I have made sure that I have all core catalogs installed. And tried creating various simple designs to see if the problem is consistent across each new design. I am not sure what is causing this render issue.
  16. Then draw a simple plan that demonstrates the problem. Maybe take one of the problem plans and downsize it?
  17. Hello. I am a beginner user of Home Designer Architectural Suite. I have a deck on the back of my house and want to change the deck stairs to flare out at the bottom. There are six steps and I would like the bottom two or three steps to flare out. Can someone point me to how this can be done? I have searched Youtube and the Home Designer forums and have not found anything or maybe I was putting in the wrong terms. Thank you.
  18. Thanks so much Jo-Ann and David! I will test your advices! Very learningfull to see you work David, but I feel a little bad not having said to ignore the "strange" garage roof. The garage roof is a flat concrete terace - but when rebuilding the house roof the zero angle of the garage roof gets deleted and roof gets rebuild, so the last thing I do when ready is to set garage roof pitch to 0. Maybe there are smarter ways... I understand why the design on the garage may look strange, but the part without building on top is the neighbours, and the garages are just on the property border. So the house on top is like 60 cm into our property to make it possible to maintain without having to walk in to the neighbour =). The garages exists today but will be teared down and rebuilt. Neighbours garage will be rebuilt exacly as today and ours is to become deeper and broader and with the house on top. Attaching a photo of how it looks today - not a too pretty sight... Once again, many thanks! JohanNuvarande garage.pdf
  19. In three out of three home plans I'm currently working on, HDP 2021 is putting 2x6 headers over all openings, regardless of their lengths, and contrary to the header sizes specified in the defaults. The plan files are much larger than the 14 MB limit for uploading, but in the attached screenshot, you will see that HDP2021 placed a 2x6 header above a 9' garage door opening. While I could go in and change each header, it would save me much time if I could get the default header sizes to work properly. Thanks in advance for your assistance!!!

  21. Draw 2 railing walls where those invisible walls are, forming a room that you can select and open. Make sure the walls are aligned with the walls below. Open the room, and uncheck "roof over this room".
  22. I got it manually. Added an attic wall. All it took was a little time. Thanks for listening.
  23. I can get pretty close making alterations to the roof manually but how do I fill the gable I created with a wall?
  24. Attached is the general shape of a house I'm working on. I want to make the roof left of the center section match the roof on the right side. I want to add a small gable to the portion indicated with the blue lines. I haven't had much luck with the 'draw gable line' tool. Any suggestions?ztest.plan
  25. I think the issue is related to the software thinks there is a wall at the end, and you see it in plan view, but is not deletable.. just becomes visible/invisible when you try to delete.
  26. Hi! The building does not exist. The roof should look like in the first picture in the post, which is the original file. Now I am creating an option 2 by reducing the size of the on top building, but fail in getting the roof ok. I printed the erronuos file and tried to manually point out what i try to achieve in below file. Br Johan
