Attic help


Recommended Posts

How do I create a room out of my attic? When I add a second floor it doubles the height of the building. I simply want to use the attic as the second floor. I have dormers in place and stairs waiting for a floor to punch through. However, I can't figure out how to create a floor in the attic to punch through without adding a second story.  When I add a second floor, the attic I want to use as the second floor becomes a third floor...but still with no floor. Any person over the age of 8 or so can probably easily solve this issue, but I'm old....and clueless.  Please help!

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.
