Transform a floor into 2 levels bearing / plateau

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I'm new to Home Designer Suite 2019.

Here is 2 things I'd like to achieve with the tool:


1) I have a unique large room dedicated to living room and dining room. But I'd like to set a clear separation between the 2 space. The dining room would stay on the reference floor but the living room would be elevated up to 50 cm from the reference floor. Some kind of 2 bearings / plateau at 2 different levels. 2 small steps would help to circulate from space to space.


2) I have for now a kitch that is open to the living room but I'd like to close the kitchen. Walls I need to build will have canopy instead of classic window. So the wall will start elevating of course from the floor and stop at 1m from the floor. Then the window / canopy will start from 1m from the floor up to the ceiling; the window must touch the ceiling. The issue I have is how to define the hight of this window so that it exactly start just above the wall (1m) but stop exactly at the ceiling?


Thanks for you support

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.


You can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see mine for an example) 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 keeps others from having to hunt for it.


And, turn on signature display too.

Hi Every one,

I thought I would be able to find some help here.

Unfortunately I'm still struggling to achieve what I'd like.

Should I add additional info. or just forget about any more help?

My favorite source for useful help is the Knowledge Base of Help Articles found at the Home Designer Website, it should be yours as well.
