    Thanks Solver -- it makes more sense now.

    glass block issue...

    Thanks David, that worked Funny to have to do all of that, you'd think the glass block wall would offer an option to prevent the floor framing from showing. But it's working fine now...

    glass block issue...

    How can I stop the framing floor members from displaying when using a glass block wall? I'm building a glass block shower, and when a wall type is changed to glass block, the floor framing shows through. How can I prevent this? Thanks!

    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?
