    Thanks Dave. I just wanted to get started right as I know if I don't I'll regret it later!

    Elevated Pier Design - How to start

    I'm a novice 4 year user now using HD Pro 15. I want to design an elevated structure where the ground floor structure is precast concrete piers with break away panels between the piers. The ground floor is only for parking, beach gear and access to stairs/elevator. The real living levels will start at an elevation of 11 ft above the ground floor for code. I am planning on three total true living levels, two primary living levels plus a tower, above the ground level. I've tried this before and am never sure whether to build the ground floor as a basement/foundation or as floor 1, with floor 2 being the first real living area. Any thoughts/advice? Here's an "example" of the structure style I'm looking to design

    I am running HD Pro 2015 on a windows 10 platform. Hopefully I've attached several pics - perspective overview, 2nd and 3rd floor plans, and camera view of the issue Thanks in advance for any help you can offer to fix this issue.

    Wall extending into ceiling below

    I'm running Pro 2015. I built a 3rd floor just for a clerestory "tower". I used exterior walls for this tower, and then for room type used open below. However, the tower's walls are extending into the ceiling below and i can't seem to correct it. It seems to only happen when I make the room "open below", which of course I want as I want the light from the clerestory windows to fill the 2nd floor. Any thoughts/ideas? I would save and attach thumbnails but can't figure out how to do that. I tried File-Save Thumbnail Image - but I can't seem to find them anywhere? I searched the forums but didn't find info on that process either. Thanks....Charlie
