    Foundation under front porch

    The easier way is to build the porch and name it as such, leave the walls in place, turn off auto rebuild foundation, then make the walls invisible or use rails.

    Garage with dormer

    Rebuild the plan starting from scratch. Uncheck ignore 2nd floor, set the first floor ceiling height to what you want, set the main pitch to what you want. Set the overhangs to what you want, I would not edit the floor and ceiling structures, unless there is reason to do so. The default ceiling heights for the Garage(s) is 120 1/2" but the default specification says 107 5/8". Somehow 12" got added the ceiling height. The foundation auto rebuild is on, but yet can edit floor D that setting should be greyed out until you uncheck auto rebuild foundation. Build the second and lower the ceiling height to 48" or lower, set the pitch on the front wall of the one car garage to 4" or higher, build the dormer.

    Issues - front overhang, roof lines, front gable

    Here's the link to that plan... In Suite you have to build according to the floor plan, if you alter the plan, the roof may not build correctly. I can explain how to build that plan, but it's easier to build it and then upload. I'll be back with plan.

    Double Gable Issues in HD Architectural

    Here's a modified version of the plan. I unchecked "ignore top floor" and lowered the Loft, room over the Great room and Stairwell ceiling heights to 0" The Bathroom, Bonus room to 60" the bedroom and porch to 48". Deleted the Cabinet that was blocking entrance to the Pantry, checked the floor finish for the Dining and Kitchen and pantry. Created rooms over the Master Bedroom and Master Bath, and made them open below which fixed the gap. Manually built the dormers, the left side auto dormer would not work, the right side did. Turned on terrain features and redid the elevation regions Turned off Auto rebuild roofs and reset the ceiling heights. Plan_1_-_New_Master_Suite__2-1.plan

    Custom Hip Roof - Porch and 1 1/2 story

    Why did you stop working? LOL Put a roof over the Porch and gable the side wall, Gable the wall where the Garage is. Go to the second floor, click on the front wall that's gabled and check auto roof return, choose the length and extension you want, do the same for the back wall and check full. Lower the second floor ceiling heights and then turn off auto rebuild roofs and reset the second floor ceiling heights.

    Creating Built-in Sections in Walls

    Suite doesn't have a wall niche tool, use a pass thru and soffits or box shapes.

    Dormer Gable Roof and Attic Roof Showing on Exterior

    I take it, this a work in progress, generally when a have a 2nd floor you lower the ceiling heights 12" or more once the roof is how should be, then you turn off auto rebuild roof and reset the ceiling heights to there defaults. Where are the stairs to the second floor? there's 2 doors on the second floor, one on the bedroom and the other on the open below room. The attic and invisible walls are useless delete them, there's a room with double doors, draw a wall to make it a room also do the same for the hallway. On the first floor, why is that room open below? If you could, upload a picture of the rear and sides of the house, you can't see what the roof should look like from the one picture.

    HD Suite Roof Question

    When you build from a floor plan, you build all at once, not one section at a time, you keep auto rebuild roof and auto rebuild foundation ON until completion. When you build from a floor plan, it's not a good idea to alter it to how you think it should be, that's why you are having roof problems. Always draw the external walls first and then the interior walls/rooms according to the floor plan.

    HD Suite Roof Question

    Jo_Ann, I have seen this same problem in later versions of Suite and Architectural, both the roof and foundation does not build in Doll House view. You may have stumbled on the reason for that, the interior walls were built first, then the external walls were built. Even though this is a single story, you still need a second floor for that part of the roof to build, also the Porch size will effect how the Garage roof builds. Here's how it looks with current uploaded plan

    HD Suite Roof Question

    The plan you sent is corrupted, in Doll House view, the foundation doesn't show, the roof doesn't show and the floor and ceiling has no finish. Use Perspective Full overview to see the issues with the Garage roof.

    Stepped floor in garage not working

    Another way is to go to the foundation, draw a wall and raise floor D for that section.
