    Roof Issue After Changing Ceiling Heights

    I am having an issue with a roof line. When I got the ceiling heights as I wanted them I lost the roofline I had. The red line signifies the original gable on the house. The overhang above the second story windows should be the eave of the second story roof. Can someone guide me as to how to get the apparent 3rd story to disappear? Proposed_House_Plan_E.plan

    Roof Issue After Changing Ceiling Heights

    Thank you for the helpful video, I have it now. Not only was I missing a step but I also did not set up the ceiling height correctly per your previous instructions because I missed a closet. I have things looking as imagined now.

    Roof Issue After Changing Ceiling Heights

    Changed it but the roof still looks the same Thant makes sense to me but I will need to get the roof back before I can do that, or should I go back and lower all the ceilings first then undo auto rebuild roofs?

    Inconsistent Floor level Issues

    I have several different floor levels on the second floor and am having trouble sorting them out. I believe this si making my roof messed up also. The ceilings are several different heights. Can someone tell me where I went wrong? I am not awesome with the software and have dozens of hours trying to draw an addition which is the North half of the house. Please tell me I don't have it so goofed up I need to start over! Proposed_House_Plan_D.plan

    Inconsistent Floor level Issues

    This seems to have worked! Not all of the rooms on the second floor allowed me to change the ceiling below value because it was greyed out, but I was able to manually change values until I got it right. I still have some weird roof problem but I think it best to address that in another thread. I have modified the name of this thread slightly to better describe what the issue was in hopes that someone else will find the answer they need. Thank you again @solver

    Inconsistent Floor level Issues

    The original part of the house is the southernmost square. The floors and ceilings in this part should be the same and I think they are accurate. The rest of the building is an addition and all of the first story floors should be at the same level as the original house. The second story floors in the addition should all be the same with what is yielded by a 100” finished ceiling height in the family room section of story 1. I realize the second story floors will end up a step up from the original house. Appreciate the reply!

    roof over door

    I need to add a roof over an exterior door. How is this accomplished?

    roof over door

    I don't want to draw exterior walls or railings though, I just want it to fasten to the wall with brackets like the picture. I haven't been able to identify a way to do that yet.

    Odd Wall Issue

    Appreciate all the good help I get here! I have attached 2 pictures. Why when I increase the ceiling height of the largest room of the second floor do I get this odd thing going on with the attic wall? Proposed House Plan B.plan

    Odd Wall Issue

    I assume this is caused by the same (I continue working on other parts of the plan)

    Odd Wall Issue

    In the bottom of the two pictures the roof above the section with windows flips from having a peak in the middle to continuing upwards.

    Roof Issues on bump out

    I am designing an addition onto our house. There are 3 things I am struggling with as I work on the kitchen area which is represented in the area by the full gable wall with no windows in it in this picture. First, what is the proper way to make the roof meet up with the second story roof (The two story section behind the kitchen is part of the same project.) Second, the bump out that is the full gabled section is just a foot wide bump out that will have a tall window in it, I want to make the peak of this higher so that it is nearly as tall as the original part of the house represented by the section with the windows already in it. Third, and maybe it gets fixed automatically when one of the first two issues is taken care of, but for some reason there is a ridge cap from what appears to be a remnant of a hip roof over the kitchen I cant seem to get rid of.

    Roof Issues on bump out

    Very close, thank you for the help! I love the program, but the learning curve is proving to be a little steeper than I expected.

    Best place to pick up that information in your opinion is where??

    Exterior wall builds inside out

    This small wall on my porch is killing me. I'm sure it is in the help somewhere but I must not be searching correct terms. For some reason the siding is on the inside and the drywall on the outside. I have tried changing it to an interior wall as well as deleting it and redrawing it, but it still comes back wrong. Where do I look?

    Thank you, I should not have had to ask that question, hopefully the post helps someone else.

    Having trouble with porch roof

    I was able to resolve the issue by playing around once I turned auto roofs back on, thank you for the advice!

    Having trouble with porch roof

    I am drawing our existing house in HD Pro 2019 so I can design an addition to it. I am new to the software. I am having problems with the porch roof. You can see in the picture that the roof is intersecting the second story windows. The ceiling height is correct but it is making the structure above the ceiling too thick. Please advise

    Having trouble with porch roof

    Sorry, The same question as in original post, how do I draw the shed type roof over the porch without ruining my main house roof and not covering up my second floor windows. Maybe I can find some instruction out there on manual roof tools. Auto building the roof was turned off during a tutorial I found on drawing the gables.

    Having trouble with porch roof

    Sorry for the delay, I really wanted to figure this out on my own and I am back for real help. Attached is a screen image of what I have now, for some reason it will not allow me to attach my current plan. You will see I have foundation issues too but I will address them in a separate post if I cant figure that out. I need the roof to be sloped to just under the second story windows. I have auto rebuild roofs off currently because when I had it on I ruined my attic and gables which are correct again at this time. Any help appreciated!
  22. New guy here, let me explain the situation. I own HD Pro version 8, and I tinkered with it several years ago. The new products look to be way more powerful than what I have and I see there is a size able discount when upgrading. I am getting ready for a 2 story addition on my house which I will build myself and my wife knows what she wants. I am not worried about the building part, but sizing beams, footings, etc. is not my thing, I work off prints. I will be having an engineer look over my plans, but need to be able to convey what my wife wants. I am trying to find info to see if Home Designer Architectural or Home Designer Pro is the right product for me given what I am looking for. Can anyone point me to some help?

    A which product question

    Thank you David and Derrik! I think the manual controls could be necessary given some of the features my wife is wanting. Derrik, can you weigh in on the advantages of pro 2019 vs version 8 I own now?
