No option "Hole in floor platform"...


Recommended Posts



I want to make a hole in the floor, but unlike all the youtube video's, I do not get the menu option:

Build - Floor - Hole in floor platform.

Build - Floor - Hole in ceiling platform.

Using Home Designer Pro 2023 vs.

Any ideas as to why and what to do?

It's helpful to know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using. This information is needed to provide the best response.


Please don't comment saying you included that info in your post, and please do not make another comment saying what you have, instead, place this info in your Signature so it's always available 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.





When you ask a question, you are initiating a conversation, so please don't ask and then disappear. Stick around to answer follow-up questions and to interact with those helping. 






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:

The built in Help System (always a good place to start)

Videos are often showing Chief Architect and not Home Designer. 


You will need to draw walls to create an Open Below room.
