Sloped driveway to Garage/Basement HD Pro 2021


Recommended Posts

I'm using Home Designer Pro 2021 and I'm trying to design a home on a slope and with the driveway going to a Floor 0 garage/basement with the home on top Floor 1. From the tutorial (, I think I have to enter the terrain data as elevation lines with 0 elevation being the at or 18'' below Floor 1, and use stem walls to create the basement/garage. I'm not sure how to create the 10% slopped driveway leading from the sidewalk up to the garage using the terrain modification tools because I don't see a sloped area terrain specification. I can enter the elevation lines corresponding to the driveway slope but this gets tricky with cutting into the existing slope and leaving a space for a retainer walls on the sides of the driveway. Should I use elevations lines that just span the driveway area with separate elevation lines for the existing terrain on the sides of the driveway? I tried doing this with elevation points and ran into issues with the software trying to create the elevation lines.

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.
