  1. Great idea, Jo-Ann, and thank you. I fiddled with it a while, and then determined that it's a heck of a lot of work for a look I'm not sure I even want. One would think the program would include that capability, since it's pretty common feature in many homes. It was, sad to say, actually much easier to take a photo of our staircase and use Photoshop to add the effect.
  2. Thanks for your reply, David. Yes, I figured out how to do as you suggested, but that's not exactly the look I'm hoping to achieve. I'd like the panelling to follow the slope or angle of the stairs. Attached is a file showing two staircases with panelling/wainscoting. Each follows the slope/angle of the staircase. One has a separate handrail and the other has the rail as an "integral" park of the panels. Either would work for me. Specs for our (rather steep and narrow) staircase: Length - 2800 mm Width - 850 mm Tread Depth - 215 mm Treads - 13 Riser Height - 198 mm Can it be (easily) done in Home Designer Architectural?
  3. Hello all. I'm a new user (not professional...just for fun) and need some guidance. We have a straight staircase surrounded on both sides by walls. There is a handrail attached to the left wall. I'd like to add wainscoting/panelling on both sides, which will follow the slope of the stairs. Might also want to play around with shortening the wall length a bit to expose some of staircase and add decorative rails. It's also possible a deep molding (?) of some sort could take the place of the handrail. I have Home Designer Architectural, and don't see any way to accomplish these two things in Help, the Training Videos or Forums. Thanks, Christine Home Designer Architectural 2017 Windows 8.1
  4. Solver/Eric, Thanks SO much for your assistance - I never would have figured out the sequence of steps! All the best, Christine
  5. Forgot to mention, I'm not overly concerned about how the outside looks. However, it would be good to know how to do both the inside and outside since I might care about the outside in the future and it would all be part of learning and understanding the program and procedures. Cheers, Eric!
  6. Oops, thank's for the response, Eric. Didn't notice the attachment to my post was missing. Here it is:
  7. Hi all. I'm a new user of Home Designer Interiors and am trying to create a slanted or sloped ceiling. The same question was asked by arthur17crusader on 22 June 2014, but I'm still confused and need hand-holding. Can someone give me specific steps and values for the dialog box(es)? The attachment shows my measurements and results from an online bathroom planner, which is what I'm trying to reproduce. The room, by the way, is a master bedroom en suite and is part of a bedroom extension added to the top of our garage. There is an crawlspace above. The roof is gabled.
