Build Floor for addition to existing model

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am running HomeDesignerPro 2017. I had created a model of a small 2-story gable-roofed home in HomeDesignerPro (same version) that was complete. I now want to add a small addition to the gable end wall that consists of 1 room on the 1st floor & 1 rm on the 2nd floor.  I have drawn the addition on the 1st floor and am able to select the interior as a "Room" to give it ceiling height, finishes, etc.  On the 2nd floor I have drawn the walls of the addition, but how do I "Build Floor" for the 2nd floor of this addition when I already have a 2nd floor in the model?  It wants to add a 3rd floor, which is not what I want.

 

I don't want to delete the existing 2nd floor and start over.  Is there a way to put an addition on an existing model? I can't select the space enclosed by the 4 walls of the addition (3 of the addition and 1 shared wall of existing) to bring up the Room Specification presumably because there is no floor.

 

Thanks in advance!

Common question. You have already "Build Floor" for the second floor. Just draw in the new walls. Make sure none are set as No Room Definition.

As Eric said -- just add the second floor addition to your existing second floor.  You may want to make a new wall definition for this addition so they are easily identified as new.  Just take the existing wall that you are using and make a copy then change maybe the hatch to distinguish it from the existing walls.  If there are walls to be demolished you may want to separately identify them also.

Thank you...turns out one wall was set to "No Room Definition" so that must be why I could not select the room.
