Multi Level Roofs

Recommended Posts

I'm new to Home Designer.  Currently using the Pro version.  I love it so far.

  Just wondering how to get the material of the higher walls overlapping lower roofs to completely over lap the roof. Sorry if its confusing. I've attached a photo to demonstrate. Second question.  I need to draw stone columns with an arched entry, also stone,  for my front porch.  I've drawn the roof using room divider tool. Pic attached for this also.  Thanks for any help I can get.

Read your post and looked at your PDF files but I still am not sure what it is that you are asking.

Thank you for your response.  On the first question, if you notice behind the corbel, the stone does not go all the way. There is a little corner showing the stud or interior wall material I suppose.

Maybe I drew it wrong from the start.

I started with all my exterior walls and the roof was all built at the same level.  Then for the bump outs, I added some interior walls to create a small section so that I could change the ceiling ht. for that section. I made those walls invisible because this is the garage we are looking at and I didn't want a small room within the garage.

 

For the second question, I suppose I can use some square column from the library and change the material to stone, but what about the top section?  I would like the columns and arch to be the same stone material. I've added a Stone Porch pic I found on the internet to show what I am talking about.

Thanks Again.

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

 

2) Please post images instead of a PDF of an image. Saves someone having to download, then view.

That is an automatically generated attic wall. You may paint these walls with your stone.

Consider a wall with a doorway.

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 Account Settings, then Signature on the left. Doing so makes it always available, and this info is often key to providing a good suggestion
