Hello. This is my first question on this forum. Fairly new to Home Designer Pro.   Trying to draw as-build of a  A-frame house with dormers and balcony  on one side. My question is hot to draw properly  first floor dormer (vertical wall ?) two story dormer (vertical wall ?) next to it and balcony on the same side of  the house ? Thank You

You set up the first floor with a zero inches tall ceiling height. Draw the first floor exterior walls to your intended dimensions. In the Room Specification Dialog-Structure Tab you uncheck "Ceiling over this room" so you initially get a vaulted ceiling. Then build roofs with a steep roof pitch and stingy overhang. The result of that will be the beginnings of an "A" Frame house.

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.

David, thank you for your response. Have no problem with creating A-frame itself, but was struggling with creating two story dormers. Fortunately was able to find solution by creating dormers manually instead of using automated solution provided by Home Designer Pro 2022. Thank you again

Greg.
