Commercial tar & gravel roof with parapet walls

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to draw a parapet wall with a tar & gravel roof (with roof drains; although drawing these drains is not my focus) like the attached picture. I have been using another program for some time but I found a lot of features in the Home Designer Pro 2016 that I really like but I am really having trouble drawing this. In addition, on a building like this there are bar joists & metal decking which I would eventually like to at least allude to in my drawings. I do not see any structural steel type elements available in this version of this program. Does anyone know if these elements are available as well?

The article uses asphalt, but you can choose a different material that better looks like what you want.

The 3D Warehouse is the best resource out there for importing 3D symbols (like roof drains) that aren't already in the software.
