    Duplex with garage in basement

    Thank you for that, pretty good result for not having worked with terrains before:-) Good idea using a wedge, it's pretty much the look I wanted. I'll give it a shot and see if I can duplicate your work.

    Thanks for replying. It doesn't make sense to me that we're not able to define a specific area that needs its own elevation -- there must be something we're missing. It's a real deal breaker for me, because I can think of many areas that would need that same functionality, a walk-out basement in particular. I hope someone from the team decides to reply, it could serve as a tutorial for others...

    Duplex with garage in basement

    Thanks for your reply. I'm using Home Designer Suite 2016. I did add a perimeter, and tried Elevation Lines to slope. That worked to some extent, except that I need the slope to be restricted to the driveway only; using Elevation Lines (as far as I can tell) spreads the slope throughout the perimeter. Elevation Region does something similar. I guess what I'm looking for is a way to define an area and then change its slope without affecting the rest of the lot. Can this be done? I can zip and include my plan if that would help.

    Duplex with garage in basement

    I'm designing a stacked duplex, with one apartment on the main floor and another in the basement. The basement portion of the dwelling is divided into 2 sections. One section of the basement is part of the main floor and includes a family room and garage, and the other section serves as an autonomous apartment. The basement is 54 inches below ground level, and the finished floor to ceiling height is 9 feet. I'd like to have a sloping driveway leading down to the garage. The slope should be restricted to the width of a driveway (about 16 feet wide and 20 feet long) and should start at ground (sidewalk) level and descend to the garage. What is the best way to accomplish this?
