How do I create a cantilever loft?


Recommended Posts

In HD Pro, how do I create (or simulate) a cantilevered loft/bedroom such as over a gooseneck trailer hitch extending back into tiny house living space?



Gooseneck deck is 8' long and I want to create a 10' long loft/bedroom that has a 2' covered storage space below the deck of the loft/bedroom.


The training videos, user manual and reference guide don't seem to have information specific to cantilever spaces inside the living area.


Is there a way to do this?

I see you said Pro, 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.

That works well for adjacent spaced but it doesn't work for overlapping levels within the living area of the overall structure.


I'm trying to figure out if adding a second story, then modifying the floor and ceiling heights.  There are issues with the ceiling heights of the floor below with this method....still trying to customize Structure configurations to make it work.


Let me know if you find a technique of modifying 2nd story configurations....I'll post a successful technique if I find one.
