    Hey Rock, are you wanting something like this picture? If you have a dimension on the PDF, you can use the point to point resize to scale the PDF.

    This is Suite 2023. Try using a cylinder from the core catalog, shapes, cylinders. There may be another way but that's all I could find.

    They will need to be connected all the way around and then uncheck no room definition in the wall specification. I was curious so I used invisible walls and connected them, then unchecked no room definition on all the attic walls. It's not perfect but gets you a floor up there.

    I don't know what version of HD you have, but some of your textures were missing when I downloaded your plan and the missing textures said HD Suite 2020. My example is HD Pro 2020 so I hope Suite will work the same. Since you started you plan on an angle your floors aren't drawing on that angle. In Plan view go to Edit, Edit Area, Edit Area (All Floors), Marquee select everything then go to transform replicate objects and rotate -15 degrees. I hope this works for you.

    The wall type definition . controls the settings your needing, see below.
     
     
     
    The foam seal is in the foundation setting, options. It shows as 1/2" in the material list and I don't see a way to change it.

    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.
