    Moving a House on a Site

    I've been working on a 2 story model already sited on a terrain perimeter with elevations. I would like to move it to another location on the site. If I drag my mouse over the 1st floor plan - which is also where the terrain info exists, it only captures the 1st floor and leaves the 2nd floor behind. What's the best way to move this house in its entirety? Thanks!

    Library Downloads

    Drop & drag worked. Thanks!

    Library Downloads

    open = double click It does not install in Pro by double clicking on it. I will try the other method. The point being I have installed at least 12 other catalogs previously without issues all using the same method and these are not working.

    Library Downloads

    I've not had any problems with downloading library content in the past but recently I've purchased a few catalogs and after downloading when I try to open the file (and yes I've chosen the correct version - X12/ 2021) to bring into my software a new blank Home Designer Pro 2020 "page" opens and that's all. I've tried closing out and rebooting and that hasn't helped. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    Angles & Trim

    Yeah, that looks nice. It's just Chief Architect is a more than I can justify for how I use it. However, that said, the amount of time I have spent trying to figure out workarounds...

    Angles & Trim

    Ok, thank you. Angles, other than 90 degrees, are like an inherent part of architecture & building. It would be helpful to have the ability to create and work with them in 3D.

    Angles & Trim

    I am working with "log post 1" or a cylinder shape or "8" single log piece" any will do. I am trying to make a 45 degree brace as well as some angled pergola pieces @ +/-30 degrees. How can I place these pieces at an angle. Also, I would like to add a 1x5 trim board to the roof fascia boards, how can I do that? I could make the piece out of a shape or even use CA-001 but, again how can I place it an an angle? The shape handles don't allow for this (rotating just distorts the shape) and there is nothing in the Specification box for angles. Thanks.

    Log Cabin

    I was using the log siding to create a wall and not trying to make it a log. However, I was trying to get the height and number of logs in a wall to display correctly i.e.: # of existing logs in the wall and that is why I was trying to change the height. Are you suggesting I build the cabin out of these log pieces? Would I be able to insert doors and windows? Under log pieces I seem to only have 8" logs but, I see I have the ability to modify the size.

    Log Cabin

    I was using Log Siding 1 and trying to modify that. Here are a few photos of the cabin. One part is different than the other

    Log Cabin

    I'm creating documentation drawings for an existing log cabin. The logs, on average are 1' diameter. I can change the log profiles in the library to 1' width but, I don't seem to be able the change the height, it is grayed out at 10". Do you know of any workarounds? Also, the logs in this cabin pass each other at the corners and the end cuts are exposed. Any thoughts on how to make that happen? Thank you! Home Designer Pro 2021

    Walls at Intermediate Stair Landing

    Sorry it took a couple of days but, here's a snippet, it's hard to get a good angle. I've marked it up and hopefully this will help convey what I'm trying to do. Basically the intermediate landing is about 3'-4" below the underside of the 3rd floor so, I am trying to fill that and the stair run in with wall while leaving it open below. There should also be just a wall railing along the run as well. No railings at the landing or stair run. Thanks for your help! Stair landing 2-3.pdf

    Walls at Intermediate Stair Landing

    So I understand how to turn railings on & off on both stairs & landings. I also understand how to change railing types. However, what I am trying to do is have a wall at the intermediate landing and along the stair run to the underside of the 3rd floor. Then a wall hand rail along the stair run. In the images I posted esentially I'd be swapping those railings for walls. It would be open below the landing and stair run to the 2nd floor.

    Walls at Intermediate Stair Landing

    How do you open the railing? I seem to only be able to open the stair, the railing is a component in the stair and it doesn't give me the option to make it a wall.
