Two Story Tower Single Story House

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a way to build a second level for a single room.  It's a spanish style home and I am trying to build a tower at the front of the home leading into an open courtyard.  The entry tower will be open from the first level to the ceiling or exposed roof.  The rest of the house will be single story.  I've attached some close examples.  I've tried to build a second story, but there doesn't seem to be an option for limiting by rooms.  I am using Home Designer Suite 2019.  Any Ideas?

Suggestion:  Pay more attention to the 'add floor' dialog box that pops up.

I see you said Suite, 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 below for how to turn them on, then 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.

You may not need a 2nd floor if the tower is just a high ceiling room. If so, raise the ceiling.

Thank you Eric... your idea about simply adjusting the height of the wall for that room worked perfectly.  I have added a signature as well, I'm a newbie to this software and love it so far.
