Beginner - multiple floor levels

Recommended Posts

Struggling to get going with this wonderful package (Home Designer Interiors 2014), even after watching dozens of videos.  The house I'm trying to model has a basement, and a garage.

 

The basement extends under just a corner of the house, about a quarter of the floor area of the main floors.  The garage is about two feet lower than the "first floor" (US terminology - we Brits call this the Ground floor).  Any tips on how to approach these issues?  A pointer to an article perhaps?  Thanks in advance!

if you already made the basement/foundation it may work to delete it , then assign the garage room as a garage and specify slab foundation and set floor © height to minus 24" , then when you build the foundation create your own from a blank plan ,not derived from the 1st/ground floor ...(it doesn't actually start a new blank plan)

and draw in your 1/4 basement.

 

you can try things out , just do a SAVE AS   eg   as  my _houseplan_2  and try it out there so you don't screw up the work done to date....
