***** I see you said Pro 2021 *****

 

 

 

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.

Look at your Absolute Floor elevations.

Commonly garage rooms are lower than the main home due to the fact that the threshold of the garage door is usually at grade and by code home floors must be at least 6" above grade. Also most garage floors are slanted with the lowest end just under the garage door. Chief Premier and Home Designer software does not by settings create a slanted floor so I commonly set the garage floor at its lowest to accommodate that tradition (as you have in your image).  So it is likely that the door into the main home would be elevated relative to the garage floor by default. The double-doors shown on the right of your image must lead to a room off the garage for HVAC or just storage, its floor should be set to the same height as the garage for easy access. In short, you were not "wrong" there but you should be overt about such settings as I explained above in the future.
