Second floor above detached garage.

Recommended Posts

I teach beginning archy and one of my students is trying to put a small studio type apartment above a detached garage. Every time he tries to put a second floor above the garage it adds an third floor to the finished house floor plan or it will put the walls above the garage roof.  He has been playing around with this for several days and is getting frustrated.  Any help appreciated.

Thanks,

R. Faust

This is a problem in all versions but you don't say what version you or he is using , so there are different answers as different versions have different Tools.

 

Are you using a Home Designer Title by Chief Architect or are you using Chief Architect Premier? .... if CAP you should be over on Chieftalk here:

But some info pulled from other threads here on this :

 

---Try adding the 2nd storey as a "Blank" floor instead of derived from the 1st floor , you then have to draw your own walls , 3rd floor on House may need to be set to 0" high.

 

It is better to build all buildings at each level as you go, if possible, especially in Titles lower than Pro as you don't have the manual tools to fix problems

 

 

---  Try drawing the garage in a new plan , and then Copy/paste+hold position and paste it into the original plan...
