Garage Foundation

Recommended Posts

My garage is on the main floor and the walls along with details show up on the main floor in plan view, but the foundation details, along with 3D cars I placed show up on the lower/basement level. This confused my contractor when reviewing the plans, so I was wondering if there is a remedy for this?

 

If there is no easy fix, can anyone offer up a reason as to what may have caused this so I can prevent on future designs.

Not sure I quite understand.  Can't you just delete the cars from Floor 0 and put them on Floor 1 instead?

The remedy is to place symbols where you intend them to be, placing things underground would confuse anyone understandably so. That is something you did and so the remedy is to refrain from doing weird, unexpected things. The software is a mechanical device that follows your orders only, so just make sure you orders make sense as you make them.

A contractor does not need to see a plan cluttered with visuals like cars in a garage, furniture etc.

 

I'd suggest turning off these layers.

Thanks to all - fixed by moving the cars. I guess the garage floor shows up on the lower level, since it's considered a foundation?

Experiencing same issue with "grass in the garage" however for different reason it appears. Saw that the foundation was out of alignment and attempted to repair but it only exacerbated the issue.

 

1. Is it possible to adjust foundation and have it simultaneously update the floor plan? 

 

2. And is this the reason why I cannot change my roof pitch to better accommodate a bonus room upstairs? 

 

Please advise.

Rebuild the foundation. The foundation room below the garage should be Unspecified, not Garage.

 

Please start a new thread to discuss roof issues.
