Showing Addition over Existing Plan

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm a newbie: I just purchased Home Designer Suite yesterday to mock up some ideas for how to build an addition onto my home. I was hoping to...

  1. Draft the plan of my home as it exists today from measurements I've taken (did this).
  2. Draft up 1-3 different versions of additions/remodels to my home as it exists today.
  3. Have a way of showing (a) the existing layout and (B) the proposed addition, theoretically in the same file by turning the addition on and off.

Is there any way to do this? Or should I take the existing model, save out another version of the file and use that to make my proposed changes. Thanks for your insights,

 

Peter

Do a Save As for each version. No way to just turn it on and off.

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.

I guess you could create custom walls and windows for the addition and give them a different color.
