Finishing/furnishing attic space

Recommended Posts

I have a finished basement, first floor with kitchen, dining, etc., 2nd floor of bedrooms, and a full set of stairs going to 3rd floor which is built into the roof line of a center entrance colonial, with a large dog dormer on the rear.  I am trying to finish and furnish this 3rd floor and faked a floor of just a few inches in between floors 2 and 3 so I could build into the roof.  I can't get walls and siding tp show in 3-D.  Is there some other way to successfully build into the roof level.  Also can't make a shed dormer on the 2nd floor run into side of house in the plan as it does in real life if there is a solution to that?  TY  (Don't know how to drag or attach file here.  Says it's too big)

sking the right question get the right answer.

  • software version = Suite 2018 (but How can I confirm that/year)?
     
  • Post information about your operating system, video card, memory, and CPU.  don't know how :(

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

Posting images helps explain your issues. Copy the file and delete all the fluff -- furniture, cars etc.

 

As for your problem, you may want to check Ignore Top Floor when you build the roof, and make the top floor full height -- not a faked floor of just a few inches.

sorry I'm so untechy, but when you say copy the file, how exactly do I do that, and I assume you delete the "fluff" first?

What does "ignore top floor" attempt to do?

 

Wait til you see my terrain question. but If I send the file, I would like to address that as well
