Cabana Design

Recommended Posts

All,

 

applogize for the noob question but trying to understand how to lay out a cabana where the are no walls but 4 (or more) posts on the corners but then a full roof.   I have been through most of the online videos and have not see a way to build it as a stand alone structure

 

Any pointers would be great

 

Thanks

 

Chris

Draw using "Railing Walls" set to "Post to Beam". You can then turn on of off the railings depending upon your purpose and look. Try it and see for yourself.

Draw 4 walls. Set them to invisible. You may then add columns as you like.

Eric,

 

That is great.... exactly what I wanted to do with the stone around the bottom.... now to figure out how to do that all :-)

 

Thanks for the suggestion

Those columns are from the library, but it's easy to make your own using the slab tool, soffits etc. I believe there is a bonus library that has columns as well.
