Attached Garage Foundation

Recommended Posts

I am having difficulty with the foundation for an new attached garage addition on an existing house and using Designer Suite 2017. I have designated the addition as a garage and built the foundation. I want the garage foundation footing to be at the same elevation as the existing house footing. The top of stem wall for the garage foundation needs to be lower than the top of house stem wall by about 16". Whenever I try to modify the garage foundation stem wall the changes are also being applied to the existing house foundation. I am a relatively new user and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Posting your plan file (close Suite first) will help others help you.

 

And ...

 

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.

I don't have images to share at the moment. The problem seems relatively simple and I think I'm just overlooking something since I've been stuck on this for a while. I want to add an attached garage to the driveway end of a bungalow. I want the elevations of the garage footing to match the existing house footing. The driveway (soon to be new garage floor) is 22" below the top of the existing foundation wall.
