  1. Thank you, Eric. That was it. But, it now seems that the space under the stairs and the main room are grouped together into one room. I must have something misaligned. I'll work on it a bit and if I can't figure it out I'll attach my plan for more help. Thanks again.
  2. I'm trying to remove a railing from a bottom stair in my plan and don't see any options in the stair properties to do this. I did find a help article about placing railing manually. https://www.chiefarchitect.com/support/article/KB-00082/manually-adding-railings-to-a-staircase.html. I tried this and while it did allow me to place a railing on the desired steps, it had the negative effect of causing the wall below the steps to disappear. If I redraw the wall then the railing disappears. What am I missing?

    Room above garage

    Thanks that worked.

    Room above garage

    OK, that worked. Thanks. It turns out the front gable wall was set for "No Room Definition". Knee walls were OK. How do I break the wall along the roof line of the gable to prevent the interior wall definition from extending out past the gable? See attached pic. Also is it possible to do a "doll house" view into this room? If I set the view to the second story it just shows the roof. If I set it to the first story it shows the garage.

    I tried that...The software doesn’t view that space as a room.

    Room above garage

    Hi. I need some help in adjusting the attached plan. I want to finish a room above the garage, but I obviously have something screwed up with the structure of the garage. The floor of this room should be level with the 2nd floor of the house, but it's not. The room should have knee walls that are about four feet high on either side and the floor should be level with the floor on the 2nd story of the home. Can some adjust my plan or let me know what I need to do to get it right? HomePlan3D.zip
  7. I have storage room in the basement of my plan. For this room I have selected the "Floor under this room" option in the room specification dialog. The problem is that for some reason HD isnt remembering this setting when I save, close and then reopen the project. This results in objects that are in that room apearing on the first floor. Any thoughts?
  8. What Eric suggested worked. I can't believe I missed that option in the edit form for soffit.
  9. I made wooden ceiling beams using soffets. The problem I am having is the beams are appearing with crown molding because the wall/floor is set to use crown molding. How do I prevent the molding from appearing on the beams? The soffets do not have a moldling defined.

    Adjusting Deck Post

    As David suggested, I ended up setting the Newel/Post Width to 1/16 and manually adding columns from the library.

    Adjusting Deck Post

    Thanks guys, but I am trying to replicate the attached. You can see the pole spacing is not uniform. Do I need to break the railing and change the spacing to acheive this look?

    Adjusting Deck Post

    Dave I am using Pro 2016. I just dont see anyway to move the posts. Maybe I have to enable a certain view?

    Adjusting Deck Post

    I am trying to adjust the position of posts that hold up the roof on a covered deck. The current posts which are part of the deck railing, were automatically generated when the deck was created. How do I manually position the posts?
  14. What is the best way to create a double, double hung window? Do I need to manually place two, single double hung windows?
