    Is there a place in Home Design 2018 to change the default stair width to something different than 39"?

    Horizontal siding over deck rim joist

    I need to show horizontal siding (Hardie) over the deck rim joist. When I change the material on the deck rim joist object to either Hardie siding (by mfg) or to generic siding from standard material library, I get vertical slats of siding. It appears it is rotating the siding material 90 degrees. Anyone tried this before? Suggestion? Thanks in Advance! Ron 011

    Fading items in a plan

    Thanks Eric. I never thought of just changing the colors all to grey. I guess that is one of the reasons why Chief Architect costs more...

    Fading items in a plan

    I cannot find a way to "screen" or "fade" items in a plan (or a layout). For example, in my electrical plan I want everything except the electrical items and walls to be faded so the electrical items stand out. How can I do that?

    Top stair landing not breaking porch railing

    Thanks Eric! Never thought of that and didn't realize that was what the software was doing. I'm still kind of new at this program.

    Top stair landing not breaking porch railing

    Most of the time (but not always) when i create stairs with a top landing against an elevated porch or deck it does not break the porch or deck railing. I remember that it has done it in the past, but I don't remember exactly when or what I did differently at the time. I am using Home Designer Pro 2017. Any suggestions? Thanks, Ron

    Bahama Shutters

    Thanks David! This one is a little better than the first one I found. It didn't have the opening supports. I appreciate everyone's help. Hopefully at some point I will be able to give back...

    Bahama Shutters

    Thank you Eric! I am a newbie here (but I guess you already figured that). I had not heard of the 3D Warehouse site. Looks like a wealth of information there! I found some Bahama Shutters there and was able to import them into my plan. I'm sure I will have lots more questions in the future. Thanks again!
