Indoor Garden

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I am a new user and studying garden designing. I am using Homedesigners 2015. I am trying to create an indoor garden but I ran into a problem. Basically I have a building with a garden space inside. So like a normal room except that it does not have a roof and the floor is mixed of cobblestone and soil terrain. The program does not allow me to build terrain inside a building and I am trying to find away to overcome this. The only option I have so far is using shape and change material into soil. This create problem since there are undulation, slope, and ditch in the garden terrain feature that is impossible to achieve using the shape. If anyone knows how to solve this please help. I attached my current plan and the two roofless rooms are the one that the garden is to be placed in.

Thank you very much

1) Please fill out your Signature -- see below.

 

2) Do you have Hide Terrain Intersected by Building? If you uncheck that, you will get terrain under the structure. Make your indoor garden room Open Below, or remove the floor structure from the room if possible.

Is this what you are trying to do?  If so, use the room divider tool to separate the rooms and to create a ditch.

For the terrain features to work correctly, uncheck Automatic for the Pad.

 

Click the plan to see what was done.

Hi guys,

I ran into another problem. So I was building a garden shed in the same plan and when I change the materials of the roof it changes the material of the sheds and the entire building. I tried to but a room divider around the shed but it did not work. Also when I attempt to add another floor to the building, It add the floors to the entire structures instead of excluding the garden area. I tried to put it builds second floor based on 1st floor plan but it did not work either. I am using Homedesinger 2015 Academic version.

Thanks you so much for the help.
