  1. I looked at the plan and the walls on the structure were marked retaining walls. That’s what was causing the walls to shoot down. I’m not sure if the picture I posted is close to what you are looking for. I put in a terrain elevation region and adjusted the flor and slab to get to where it’s at.

    Thank you. I followed your instructions and I was able to pull it down. To be clear, there is no way to set the height of the wall from the floor, you just have to "eyeball it". Is that correct?

    In an elevation view you can derail a line and set it at the height you want then pull the wall up to it.

    The attic wall is the wall I changed 

    I just got to the computer. I selected all the upper windows in an elevation view and copied them. deleted the wall with the windows, grabbed the top of the short wall and pulled up to the ridge. then in plan view went to edit toolbar, paste hold position to put the windows back in the wall. break the top of the wall at the ridge and pull the ends down below the roof.

  4. In a 3d view, Select the Adjust Material definition (rainbow) tool, with that tool click on the stone and change the color of the Pattern to the color you want the stone to be and then in the texture tab select blend with texture.

  5. I used Auto roofs to start then locked the pitch on the left roof and adjusted the baseline height to the desired height. Next, I did the same thing to the right roof and then selected the ridge of the right roof and hit 2 on the keyboard and selected the left ridge to reconnect the ridges.

  6. There is an option that might work, if you send you plan file to someone with a version like Home Designer Pro, they can draw in your cathedral ceilings and send back to you. You won't be able to modify them but at least they would show in plan and 3D.

    In Suite, can you draw another roof plane where I drew the ceiling plane? If you can just remove the overhang and It will give the same look.

    I downloaded the trail version of Suite, and it only draws roof automatically. Sorry
