How to create multiple foundations

Recommended Posts

I have a one story remodel plan on a flat terrain with two different foundation depths, a crawl space and a full basement. I also have a stairway that starts on the first floor, passes over the crawl space, and lands on the basement floor. How do I create both the crawl space and the full basement in the some house?

Build your foundation with settings for one or the other.

 

You will need to manually edit the foundation. Draw in a wall separating the two areas. Adjust the settings of the foundation rooms to vary the wall height, remove the slab in the crawlspace etc.

It works exactly like other rooms, by adjusting the ceiling height. 

 

There is no magic when you Build Foundation. You could create a blank level 0 and draw in your own walls, just like you drew in the walls on level 1.

Oh, the ceiling height! I was adjusting the floor height, and that didn't look right. I will try that. Thank you.
