How to Show Existing Stone Foundation.

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to show existing conditions on a home built in the early 19th century. The foundation is stacked stone and while basically plumb on the inside (at least for these purposes), the exterior slopes from about 12" wide at the sill to approx 36" wide at the base. Is there a straightforward way to show this in both plan and elevation?

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

 

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.

Here are a couple of wedge shaped molding profiles. Drag the file into a Pro window to install in your User Library.

You can apply these to a soffit or custom countertop.

 

Maybe the best is to use roof planes. This keeps things outside the foundation.
