Trying to draw a room with the cape cod crunch

Recommended Posts

Greetings, 

 

Brand new to this and just purchased HD Suite 2021 last night. Been having fun learning, watched a load of videos and read ton but the one thing I purchased this to do I am having trouble figuring it out. 

I have a cape cod house. Remodeling my second floor master bedroom. The roof pitch is 12/12. The side walls go to 48" then the ceiling slope begins. The ceiling height is 90".

I would like to have this drawn out on the program but cannot seem to figure it out. I tried messing with "cathedral" but couldn't get the right results.

I really don't want to add in the roof elements just for this one room. Is there a way to work with just this room or do I have to design the entire house?  

I would also love any learning resources. Thanks in advance for the wisdom.

I see you mentioned HD Suite 2021.

 

You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) 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.

You don't need to model the entire house, you just need to understand how the program works enough to create your single room.

 

The best place to start is HomeDesignerSoftware.com. Use the search there -- search for cape cod to start.

 

I linked a few other resources above.

 

You will need a roof, because it creates your ceiling.

Set the ceiling height to 48"   Turn off auto rebuild roofs   reset the ceiling height to 90" or higher...

Thank you so much for spending the time to show how to work through my specific challenge. I'll get better at this I'm sure! Have a wonderful day!
