    shower design

    Can you post an image of what you want? I hope you did not really read that somewhere. Use a soffit, slab, or custom backsplash to form the seat. Wall Niche. And if you update your signature this info won't need to be added to each post.

    How to make gable roofs with differing wall heights

    What you want to change is the ceiling height. Draw what I suggested above. Divide the space with an interior wall where the ceiling heights change. Open the room specification and change the ceiling height. Generally, wall heights are controlled via ceiling height. Roofs build over rooms, so they are also affected by ceiling height.

    How to make gable roofs with differing wall heights

    Did you do what I suggested and build a new model? Why are you trying to adjust the exterior wall heights?

    How to make gable roofs with differing wall heights

    What walls are Half Walls? Try this. Start a new plan and draw the T shaped structure using Exterior walls. Change the 3 red walls to full gable. The roof should auto build, but if not, build the roof.

    How to create this front gable

    Figure how it would be done within the program, then see if Architectural has that ability.

    How to create this front gable

    These are easy to do, just think through the steps required. Roofs build over rooms, so adjust the ceiling height up or down as needed, and draw in rooms, even if they are not part of the plan to control the roof. When it's correct, turn off auto Rebuild Roofs.

    Site for kitchen design/redesign discussion?

    Houzz and Gardenweb -- same owners. The site navigation is poor and they keep changing it making it worse. https://www.gardenweb.com/discussions/kitchbath

    Architectural Band (midway)

    You just need to experiment and see what works best for your application. What specifically are you having trouble with?

    Dormers won't build opposite each other

    You can draw your own ceiling planes.

    Dormers won't build opposite each other

    Paste Hold Position No. They could be modeled -- I'd use Custom Countertops for the treads and Custom Backsplash for the stringers. I've used 2 stairs next to each other to simulate.

    Dormers won't build opposite each other

    Have you considered an alternating tread stair? Looks like you could squeeze in a full bath.

    Dormers won't build opposite each other

    I don't think auto dormers will work here. Sometimes the program just does not automatically do what you want so you need to take over and do it manually.
