Have a plan, now two questions. Roof and Pillars

Recommended Posts

I have a plan, for the most part like I want it. But, I want to raise it on 16 - 30cm x 30cm (~ 12" x 12") pillars, one story up. I want to have a lower level to use for storage, parking, etc. (Not sure if that is even the proper size. But, I figure more is better / stronger.) 

 

The home will be constructed where no utilities are located. So, I will also put three large tanks (20,000 liters each) under the home, for our water requirements.

 

I live in Cambodia, so anything concerning "code" does not apply here. Believe me, it really does not apply here!

 

house.plan

 

I have looked in the Database, to no avail. So, any instruction on how to do this would be appreciated. 

 

=======================

 

2nd question:

 

I am assuming the roof is generated by a default setting? If not, how can I change it to metal, with metal frame for the roof, rather than lumber and, what I can only assume is shingles?

 

Again, any instruction on how to sort this would be appreciated. 

 

Thanks again,

Go back to the Knowledge Database and type 'house on piers' in the search bar.

Insert a new floor under the house. Use one of the available tools -- Soffit, Slab, Closed Shape from library to create the columns.

 

You can set the roof materials, I think, in your roof defaults. Not sure about the metal framing. I believe you would need Pro for that.

Is this is what you want to do?

Yeah, pretty much. 1 floor downstairs, for storage, parking, rainwater harvesting tanks, solar battery and power house, etc. 

 

I will load the file now, to see. Thank you.
