Elevation data


Recommended Posts

Ladies and gentlemen,


I am a long-time user of Home Designer, now using Home Designer Pro 2019.  I have mostly used the program for interiors.  Now I am trying to develop the terrain so that I can put on it some suggestions for improvements proposed by a landscape architect.  My property is about 450' above sea level, and I have a current survey indicating contours on this fairly sloped lot.  Here's my quandary: when I "built" the house, I don't remember ever setting its elevation--but I am sure it is not anything like 450 feet above sea level.  Does anyone have any ideas how to account for this?  The views and renderings don't have to be perfect, just illustrative of how the proposed improvements will look.  Many thanks for any tips.

And ...


I see you said Pro 2019, but ...


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.
