Veronica replied to Veronica's topic in Q&AThanks so much, guys! I will try again, and plan better before startingup this time
Veronica posted a topic in Q&AHi, I have just started with this program, Home Designer Suite, and have build my house as starter. After the house was finished I wanted to add my garage and barn into the same terrain. These are buildings that lie separate from the house (not attached to the main house). The problem is that if I try to build a garage with exterior walls the program does not create a foundation, only the walls and I can also add the roof. The reason is most likely that the Auto Rebuild Foundation was turned OFF, so I tried to turn it ON and build again. First I got a warning that I would loose the information I had already put in for the garage and after I pressed OK the walls on the garage disappeared. This is no problem since I can easily build it again, BUT... When I then try to build exterior walls with Auto Rebuild Foundation ON I got a new warning; Cannot build new wall with Auto Rebuild Foundation turned ON, would you like to turn it OFF? So, to be able to build a new wall, the Auto Rebuild Foundation had to be turned OFF and I tried again with a different approach; I built the square of exterior walls. Chose Build Foundation and selected Slab and pressed OK. Then a new warning appeard; Any work on the foundation plan will be lost. OK? When I then pressed OK, I lost all information I had put in on the garage. All the walls disappeared and the foundation on the main house got changed instead of creating a foundation for the garage. Not unexpected since I got the warning, but I thought I would be able to build a separate building in the same terrain, with foundation etc. Is it not possible to have several buildings in the same house plan and terrain? Does it have to be build on a separate plan and importet into the terrain where the main house is, or is this possible at all?
