  1. I have Home Designer Pro 2020 and there is a draw ceiling plane in the roof dropdown menu, use that to draw a ceiling plane on the side with no ceiling and drag it to the center of the r        to connect to the roof plane.

  2. Try this, I did it in Home Designer Pro 2023 trail version.

    1. SET POST ALL AROUND
    2. MAKE A COPY OF EXTERIOR WALL TYPE, CAHNGE FRAMING FROM LUMBER TO AIR GAP AND CHANGE FILL COLOR IF YOU WANT.
    3. SELECT WALL AND BREAK ON EACH SIDE OF POST
    4. SELECT SMALL WALL AT EACH POST LOCATION AND CHANGE TO NEW WALL TYPE.
    5. IF AUTO FRAMING IS ON IT SHOULD FRAME CORRECTLY.
    6. THE ONLY LOCATION THAT THIS WONT WORK IS THE CORNERS.

  3. I believe you’re talking about the small gable above door not having the return all the way across. I’ve had that happen before and I’m trying to remember what I did to correct it. I’m nat at computer for a few hours but will check it out unless David has had this problem before.

  4. This could work for your material list. 1 layer Slab floor, draw a polyline box over slab, convert to slab, change thickness, change material to ridged foam and lower below slab. repeat with 1/8" vapor barrier. It reports to material list as a slab but with different material. The elevation I drew cad boxes and fill color. Hope it helps.

  5. Is this what your trying to accomplish? I used HDP 2021 and cut the main roof on each side of dormer and moved middle section in front of Dormer back against the wall. That will turn off your auto build roof if you have it on.
