Basement Garage and Terrain

Recommended Posts

The current terrain pad is set to 48".  I want to keep the front and sides at 48" but I also want to add a garage door at the rear of the building (underground parking).

 

My problem is that I do not know how to get the rear of the home lower than 48" and still retain the 48" for the remainder of the home on a level platform.  Can anyone advise me as to what the true number is going to be between the rear of the house and the fence (without a trench look to it)?  and do I need to intersect that line through the building itself to create a sloped driveway?

Thanks JoAnn, I was hoping you would be the one to reply; I had read a prior response of yours that I was trying to duplicate in my design, but I ended up with a ski slope going into the garage.  Should of put snow on it. LOL.

I was hoping that was what you were wanting to do.
Once you get the basic regions set up, you can then modify them to suit your own particular terrain.


I have found that it is easiest to use terrain regions, and let the program do the gradual sloping between the different region elevations. :)
Using elevation lines can get really complicated and confusing.  Likewise, elevation points (even MORE so).

I have a similar problem but the daylight garage is on the left side of the house with retaining walls.  How do I create this?
