Issues with Courtyard imbedded twice

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

I hope that I am using the proper protocol for this forum.

 

I am a new user of Home Designer Pro 2018.  I have used in the past Virtual Architect.

 

I am designing a single story house of a U shape.  The U shape provide the setup for a courtyard.  I have created the U shape house which automatically created a roof over the house and the courtyard.  I researched through the forum that the trick to it is declare one wall as "No Room Definition".  It worked, the courtyard was not covered by the roof.

 

When I added four walls around the house to create a covered walkway all around the house, the automatic roof feature covered it including the courtyard.  I tried to define one wall of the new perimeter as a "No Room Definition" but to no avail.

 

I am attaching my plan and 2 photos showing my target design.

I see you said Pro 2018, but ...

You can turn off the roof over any room by unchecking Roof Over This Room.

Hello Solver,

 

I did go to settings and provided a photo and location.

 

I think I did try that as it was mentioned in one of those posts.
