    Thanks for your reply DJP. I do understand what you are saying, I am however really impressed with the tools provided by Chief (videos, type etc.) that can help teach me to use the software. So many software options are either very incomplete in this area or require so many plugins to get what I am after, it becomes difficult to search for the proper methods to accomplish the end result. I am trying to find a piece of software that I can stick with and get more proficient with over time. HDP looks like it has most everything I could want. I am about 2 weeks into the trial and I am pretty impressed with what I have been able to do so far. Thanks for your time.

    That's pretty slick John! To pull the floor out over the doors is the part that I am curious about doing, however thanks for pointing out the soffit and/or box method for the details on the beams! That was extremely helpful!

    Second floor overhang, Possible?

    I'm sorry but I only have a quick side view. I am building a room over an attached garage. The Garage is not built yet but the foundation/monolithic is already poured and I would like another 4' of space in the room above so the construction will need to extend out over one wall with glue-lams and posts at the end of the beams. I would probably just use steel connectors and bolts for the support. The Garage is 32 wide and 30 deep and I want the room to overhang going front to back so I will achieve a 34' deep room above the 30' deep garage. The house is really a 1.5 story with a 12/12 pitch roof going width wise over the garage and the dormers will be front and back (depth of the garage) The extension is 28' wide and extends out 4' + a 18" roof overhang. Second floor is an 8' knee wall and gable dormer with an approximate slop of 4-5/12. House height (as well as the attached garage) is 25' 2" garage floor to peak. The overhang is on the left of the drawing. Ignore the door in the drawing. That will end up inside the garage. Thanks for trying to help me!

    Second floor overhang, Possible?

    Hello all, I am new and researching HDP to see if I can draw my design with the software. So far I am really impressed with it. While I do not totally understand all items and processes to achive what I want, the videos and training are very good and I feel that most of my questions can be answered buy just watching and reading. I have not however been able to find an answer as to how to make a second floor overhang a first floor with post and beam construction. Is this possible? Other methods? Thanks in advance for any assistance.
