  1. Try using "soffits" as your go to material. They can be sized and colored to match your materials of choice.
  2. No, but I'll give that a try, thanks for the suggestion ...
  3. That must be my problem, no direct x12. Those are stock items also. Thanks
  4. Tried that with no luck, not sure what else to try ?
  5. That did not help me. I tried that but no luck . . . I'm now running Windows 11
  6. Why am I seeing these strange color tiles ? When I use the program the up close colors are right but when you scroll back these crazy lines and tiles show up. I'm thinking that a setting is wrong somewhere but not sure where to look . . .

    12" wall thickness

    Thanks, how I missed that I'll never know

    12" wall thickness

    I know how to change wall thickness's (under wall types) to some point, but my issue is how can I make walls 12" thick ? I see choices for 4', 6", 8" & 16", but no 12" ? I use HD Pro 2021 running windows 11. Thanks in advance !
  9. OK, long story short . . . after I reset my pre-made "template plan" to reflect these wall type details ("edit / default settings / exterior wall or interior wall / wall types" set as such) and I redraw a new plan, the framing now shows outside walls at 24" centers and internal walls at 16" centers. I believe by going thru all of these recommendations I missed something but I am now happy with the outcome. It is best to set default settings on a "template plan" as I have which will then provide these specific details as I design future plans. For some reason pre-drawn plans will not show the changes made in default settings after having been done.
  10. That is absolutely the best !! I appreciate the advice !
  11. OK, I've opened and checked defaults for both "interior and exterior wall types", if I click on define the "wall settings" it shows 24" centers on exterior walls and 16" on interior walls, however when I click on camera view tools and "perspective framing overview" the studs inside and outside are all 24" on center. I am now at a loss as to what I am missing here. As I mentioned the wall settings are "what I want" but framing view "is not".
  12. Could not find what I am looking for there, I tried using an exterior wall (which I assumed would be insulated) as an interior wall, but that did not work ? Any other ideas ?
  13. Is there anywhere in the program (HD Pro2021) where you can specify an internal wall to be insulated, such as near a bathroom or living area to keep sounds deadened between them ?
  14. Wireless Logitech M325 is what I use and love it !
  15. I should have thought of that, looks good, thanks !
  16. My next question is this . . . I have created a set of drawers in the bottom portion of a extended (to the ceiling) half wall. Problem is that the program will not let me place a set of doors (bifold or sliding) in this wall (above the drawers) on account of the drawers (?), anyone have an idea of what I can do to put these doors in this wall ? (picture attached) I use HD Pro 2021

    Old wood for siding

    Thank you everyone for the advice !

    Old wood for siding

    Where would I look for old wood siding, such as what you would see on old cabins and barns . . . I use HD Pro 2021. I have the siding / shiplap that comes with the program but I am looking for something a little more photo realistic. I've tried 3D warehouse, but having no luck there. TIA !
  19. Thank you y-g-m-n I plan to build out in the sticks where there are no building codes (per se), but I still need to design and build the home to tried and true codes & standards. I have another issue that I have now noticed . . . When I design a very limited plan (for the sake of determining the dimensions of inside and outside wall materials) I now notice that interior as well as exterior walls have their studs all on 24" centers ? I need the outside walls to be 6" studs on 24" centers (done), and the interior walls to be 4" studs on 16" centers . . . I have tried going thru all of the default settings but ! can't figure out where I need to make this adjustment ? Any help would be appreciated, if I can even do this with HD Pro 2021 ?
  20. I use Home Designer Pro 2021 and have this question . . . Is it possible to set the outside walls to have 24" on center (6") studs ? I figure that by having 6" wide studs on the outside wall (on 24" centers) would help with insulation here in SE Texas and that I could then use the thicker insulation in those walls.
  21. Thanks David, I have made it work as you have noted.
  22. Why is the material smaller on the pony wall as compared to the regular wall below it ? I have tried everything to make the materials look the same. I use Home Designer Pro 2021 on Windows 10
  23. Thanks guys !! . . . your suggestions just help me to better understand the program and its offerings !
