How to draw a structure that is single story in the front and 2 stories in the Back


Recommended Posts

i have a project that is to remodel and to add a deck to the existing structure at the second story floor / Ceiling line.

The site is very steep and the front existing entrance was created with retaining walls.

you enter a driveway parking area that is at ground level the home appears to be 1 story from the front. the site then steps down behind the retaining wall to reveal that the structure is 2 story. from the back you can see both stories in the entirety. How do you draw this in Home designer? is there a tutorial some where ? Can I draw the structure then adjust the topo? :rolleyes:

Not sure what you are asking about -- the structure of the existing house, the terrain, or all of it.




It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click My Settings, then Signature on the left.
