Creating bathrooms and islands

New to the group and the program.  I have a question about creating custom bathrooms.  I would like to create a standalone shower with separate tub.  I've downloaded the group bathrooms, but this doesn't help.  I have also paid for one of the bathroom sets, but this doesn't have what i want either.  I suppose I could create a separate room, but was hoping there was a fixture that I could just place and adjust the size of.


The other question is islands.  i would like to create an island in the kitchen.  I'm guessing i need to create a set of base cabinets, but this seems awkward.


Any help or suggestions are much appreciated.

Spend some time watching a few of the videos on YouTube to get a feel for how the software works. 


Not sure what you are referring to when you say "create a standalone shower with separate tub". 


As for islands, they are created from components just like in real life. Why does this seem awkward? 




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.

Thanks for the information.  I designed my last home, but this was on a different program and a PC, not a MAC like I am using now.


WRT to your question about the bathroom.  I would like to create a bathroom, with a separate shower and tub, not a shower over tub.  I cannot really find any bathroom fixtures/objects.  I remember the last program i used allowed for a shower stall to be created and then sized for use, as well as a tub, toilet, etc.  Each was a standalone object which could be placed into the plan.  Is there something like this in the program.  I cannot seem to locate this.


I'm really just designing a basic home plan which i can take to my draftsman and engineer for blueprints prior to my build.


Again, appreciate the help.
