  1. Hello: After numerous attempts in Home Designer Suite 2020, I am unable to successfully build a second floor bedroom that has a dormer and gable roof. In addition, the roof above the adjacent garage/attic area is auto-building as if the interior walls are exterior walls. In a camera view, the interior walls can be seen from the exterior. I am hoping someone could please take a look at the attached picture and plan file to determine where I have the wrong settings in the right place. Chelsea House Plan.plan

    Dormer Gable Roof and Attic Roof Showing on Exterior

    Thank you, David and Eric: I greatly appreciate the quick feedback which provided several settings to check and kicked off a few new ideas. The roof pitch was incorrect (default is 8 in 12)...adjusted to 12 in 12 which helped fix a few issues. However, there is still a very odd roof line and exposed interior walls. It seems much of the issue lies in the height of the garage walls and the height above the front door which should be a ~2' and 1' higher, respectively. I don't see a way to correct wall height in Home Designer Suite 2020. The garage roof line is about 8" above the front door roof line...which is about 20" above the roof line adjacent (right) to it. David, the interior walls that you saw are actually interior walls - with the "outside" being attic walls. I may need to add a knee wall to the attic space in the front of the house (which there are in reality) and change the exposed exterior wall in the rear a knee wall, which it is). Thanks again, I'll kept chipping away at it. Rob

    Move Floor From Level 1 to Level 0

    Hello: I created a walk-out basement floor on Level 1 instead of Level 0, and I would like to move the basement to Level 0. Is it possible, in Home Designer Suite 2020, to delete the monolithic slab foundation that is currently on Level 0 and move the Level 1 basement to Level 0 - essentially making it the foundation floor as it should be? If so, how? Thanks a bunch! Rob

    Move Floor From Level 1 to Level 0

    Thank you for the answer, Eric. Your recommended solution did work in moving the floor to Level 0, but I now have a very confusing/unsolvable battle with varying absolute & relative ceiling/floor heights on Level 0 and also cannot create a new foundation without deleting the "new" Floor 0. Should I just delete everything and start over?

    Ceiling surface not displayed

    Sometimes, I feel like a knucklehead looking for doorknob on a baseball...Ceiling Surfaces in Display Settings was click, and all ceilings appeared as they should. I am certain I checked this setting numerous times...sigh...sorting the Display Settings by checked/unchecked quickly brought the list of unchecked items to the top, one of which was the fix. Thank you, Eric, for your time and knowledge.

    Ceiling surface not displayed

    Thank you for the quick response, David. I did look for myself prior to posting my question, and I read the post very carefully many times, and I studied the settings for several hours, including the other relevant settings. In addition, I studied numerous other posts on this site and other sites. I read the help/instructional files several times, and I watched numerous YouTube videos per Eric's suggestion...and I even turned on my signature per his suggestion so my version is readily available, Thanks Eric. I also changed Ceiling Finish & Ceiling Structure measurements 20-or-more times (and others) including toggling check-boxes before posting my question. In my case, Flat Ceiling Over this Room was checked by default, Ceiling Finish was never set to "zero," and Ceiling Structure was never set to "zero." Yet, regardless of the changes I've made, the ceilings are still not displayed, and the underside of the "chipwood" floor is visible sans the joist structure, same as it is in the original post above. I posted my question because there is not a stated solution to the original inquiry in this thread, and I thought if there was one, that solution may be relevant to my case. Sorry to have bothered you folks, and thanks again for taking the time to respond. RobnATL Home Designer Suite 2020
