Foundation keeps showing above terrain

Recommended Posts

My foundation keeps showing above my terrain and this is also making my doors higher then I want them and my wall finishes look bad because you can see the foundation. How can I essentially lower my house or raise my foundation?

some pics would help show what the issue is , we will be guessing other wise ....

 

Your foundation will always show above the terrain ...that is how it should be, even in real life.....  it depends on what type of foundation you built as to where your terrain will build. there are KB articles ( see my sig)  which cover all this nicely....

 

eg http://www.homedesignersoftware.com/support/article/KB-00322/72/Home-Designer/Terrain/Setting-the-Height-of-Terrain.html

If you didn't build the foundation yet , your grass is probably showing 0-6" down from the main floor height,  ie you may have grass for carpet  :) if so make sure you have a foundation or slab floor 1st , then alter the Pad elevation in the Terrain's DBX (dialog box) to what you need and uncheck auto elevation.
