  1. My client wants a kitchen with a LOT of moulding. I can do crown moulding, light rails and all the vertical stuff, but I can't seem to figure out how to do any vertical moulding like in the picture below on the left to do around the refrigerator. Also, I have never figured out a solution for panel ready appliances and how to actually put panels on them. Do I just put a cabinet door in front of it? I'm afraid that would just cover the handle and everything and wouldn't look right.
  2. Thank you Gary! That worked. Wow. That was easy. I'm not sure why the adjustments I made before did not work. Thank you Eric. I did try to do that. I'm not sure why it was giving me that problem. It seems to be fixed now.
  3. I know I've done something silly to cause this when I was trying to adjust my roof angle to be close to my client's actual roofline. It's a remodel and I needed to make sure the roofline was in the correct place so I could figure out the heights of the kitchen cabinets. I did not draw the entire house because we are not remodeling the entire house, just a few parts. I try not to do extra work. Anyway, in making all the adjustments, I've done something to cause this space where my drywall doesn't go all the way up (or my roof doesn't come all the way down on the outside wall. I've tried adjusting everything I can think of to fix this, but I'm just not having any luck and I don't want to send a 3D view to the client like this. Can someone help? The ceiling is not exactly in the correct place, but I know the beams are very close. Kitchen.plan.zip
  4. Thank you y-g-m-n. I think I know what you are saying, but that isn't quite what I am wanting to do. Eric gave me some good directions and it was easy!
  5. Well, fortunately, I just saved it again and I clicked back over to my camera view to send you a picture of how I fixed it after watching your video and I got the eternal spinning wheel again. Anyway, I did exactly what you showed me and it worked! It seems like I tried some of those things, but evidently not. It looks great now and is ready for me to finish up a couple of things to present to clients in the morning.Thank you so much for your help!
  6. Thank you for that! Here it is!Remodel 5.plan.zip
  7. I didn't hide the cameras on the floor plan view.
  8. Actually, I think where the studs are showing is below the front pony wall where I created the arched pass through. Should I try lengthening/lowering that wall?
  9. So, I'm designing a stove alcove that has cabinets underneath it. So, it doesn't go to the floor, but sits on the countertop. I had no idea how to do this, but I used pony walls and raised them off the floor. That might not be best way to do it, so I'm completely open to suggestions. The problem I'm having with doing it this was, is that for some reason, the studs are not covered with drywall on the ends of the wall. And this is happening only part way up. It's so strange. I'm not sure what I have done or not done to cause this. I did change the wall width to 8" because I wanted to create some little niches inside for spices, oils etc. Any ideas? I have tried redrawing it also and it doesn't change. I attached a couple of pictures. I'm not sure if the plan file is too big to attach.
  10. My previous version was the 21. But yes, I think it's a bit better. It still happens sometimes, though. It seems to happen when I get too "clicky" and don't give it time to process or something. I guess it can't keep up with my occasional indecisiveness or accidental clicks.
  11. My sticky keys are off. It just froze up on me again. Thankfully, everything is saved. I usually just quit the program. It does seem to happen when I click on several things quickly. I get the eternally spinning wheel....
  12. I'll try that! I was just getting ready to start trying to duplicate the drawing, but maybe that is easier. Thanks Keith!
  13. Thank you for the help. At least I have something to go off of. I can open another window and have something to go off of, I guess. The Premier is way more technology than what I could handle. I obviously can't even do everything with what I have, but it usually works well for what I need. This will just take me a bit more time than it would with the Premier, but at least I don't have to go and measure the whole house!
  14. Hello! I know I have a lot of questions, but I guess that's because my business has taken off! It's crazy! Anyway, I was sent a couple of DWG files by a client. I am drawing a remodel of her house and she has already had someone draw an as-built plan. I was able to import the file following the instructions, but I don't have a "convert CAD to walls" option. I'm assuming that is on the Premier version, but not the Home Designer PRO version. Any suggestions for any easy way to do this with my PRO 2024 version? I saw something about drawing over it, I'm just not sure how I would then delete the imported part easily. Can I delete an entire floor? The house is all one story. Could I build a second story and then turn on the reference so I can see the first floor and draw over it? Then delete the 1st floor? Are there any better suggestions? I'm not even sure that will work. I just thought of it. I attached the file. It might be too big. I've never attached an entire file before. Sorry if I did it wrong. As you can tell, I am self taught in this program. I've done lots of plans, but I'm no architect or engineer. I love learning how to use the program more efficiently though and it's easier to remember the more I use it. Imported file for Fisher.plan
  15. It worked Gary! Thank you so much. I think something happened and turned off auto rebuild roof. When I turned it back on, it looked more like yours and then I was able to fix it how you suggested. I also changed the pitch on both large sections to 12:12 and I think that looks better too. Now if I can just figure out how to do trusses in the sanctuary area. I'm hoping my upgrade makes it easier.
