deck/porch building underground?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am working on a ranch house plan that has a walk out basement. So I have the stepped foundation at floor 0, the garage on floor 1 since floor 2 is a little higher & is the main floor. In trying to build a farmer's porch & a small rear deck off of floor 2, when I select build deck railing, the items get build on floor 1 so the entire structure is underground? Any suggestions are very welcome, as this is stumping the daylights out of me. Thank you all.

The traditional way of modeling this type of plan is to have the house and garage on the same floor, then set the garage floor to a negative height to lower it.

 

As for the deck, make sure you are on level 2 when drawing it.

Thank you Solver. I have been trying it on level 2. I have the floors separated since I need to use 16" I-joist as the framing for the 2nd floor. Will try to see if I can drop the floor enough to make it work. It's the only thing holding me up from finishing the preliminary design for the clients.
