Before and after remodel plans

Recommended Posts

I recently upgraded to Home Designer Pro 2020 because I need the functionality of creating 18x24"  drawing sheets for submittal to the local county.   I am doing a remodel on a large house and I have spent the last couple of days drawing the house as it exists, and learning HD Pro which is a wonderful program.  My question is that I have to show the building as it exists now and how it will look after the remodel is complete.  You know, before and after views.  I have the before views almost finished but I don't know how to then create the after views without modifying the original view.  And I need both so can put them side by side on a blueprint. I  have watched hours of video, searched this forum and searched the KB.  Please help.

Once the as built (the before plan) is complete, save it, then Save As to the remodel plan.

 

Pro allows multiple plans to be sent to a single layout sheet.

thanks for the quick reply. I did update my profile before I posted so no idea why it still said Architectural.  

I will study the method of plotting from multiple plans on one layout sheet.

Is there anyway to link plans together such that a change in one ripples to the others?

For example, a change to the as-built plan is made and it would be very desirable if that change is reflected in other plans that were derived from the as-built. Otherwise, each change to the as-built version must be manually applied to other plans representing different planned designs and changes.

Best to start a new topic with your questions, but to answer yours, no -- no way to link plans.
