Pole barn help for HD Pro 2022 ?


Recommended Posts

Hey guys please see link below for reference.... i was wondering if anybody has any similar content about pole barn design that would be compatible with Home Designer Pro ?  The link below contains wonderful information but it only applies to Chief Architect Premier.  Also i found a sample plan (attached) that includes all of these settings in action specifically for a Pole Building but it was done in Premier so i can not edit it.  I am new to the products so i am hoping to find some help to give me a kickstart with what i want to do.  I want to build a home with post frame construction (pole barn as some ppl call it.)  Thanks in advance!

What's the holdup?


That's a rather detailed article -- did you follow it until you found something only Chief has?

Try not to get caught up in the details. They want you to set some defaults.



In the 1/4" Scale Dimension Defaults dialog, on the Locate Objects panel:

  • Click the radio button beside Wall Dimension Layer.
  • Click the radio button beside Primary Wall Side.
  • Check the box beside Rough Opening.


Think about the end result, then think about how you might do it in Pro.


Here is the dialog from Pro





If I were doing this, I'd just start drawing and work through things as you go.


Have you searched the forum?

*** I see you said Pro ***



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: https://youtu.be/dDT6wbrrVRM
