Placing First Floor Plan on the Site Plan


Recommended Posts

Just started using Home Designer Pro 2021 a few months back and was trying to get advise on how to get my floor plan on the site layout.  Should all of my site information, (property lines, setback lines, tree survey, etc.), be located on a layer on the first floor plan?  Or should it be a separate drawing file?  I've tried to copy my first floor plan over to a site layout, but the structure does not copy correctly.  Also, if I have to go back and make a revision to the first floor plan, then I have to delete that portion of the site layout and recopy the revised first floor plan.  Or I have to make the identical revisions on both the first floor and site plans.  The site is unique which requires tweaking the design and placement of the first floor to get to fit optimally.  Thanks in advance.

*** 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.






Many questions have been asked and answered. The Home Designer website is a good place to start your search.


Here is a video about searching the forum:

The built in Help System (always a good place to start)

Do everything in one file.


Site plans are often called a plot plan, and searching here and via the links above should turn up more info.


Suggest you create a practice plan where you learn and work through any issues first before spending lots of time on the real thing.
