  1. You might have the room definition set to DECK and it is generating the supports and footings.  Try changing the room definition to something else and see if it goes away.

  2. You have too much going on with overlapping items that are confusing the program.  Use terrain break tool with transition set to zero.  Elevation regions or lines should not overlap.  Use the terrain break for quick transitions.  You might also want to set the terrain to be big enough to encompass all of the various regions.  Adjust the terrain specification settings to be at low or even linear.  It might help if you do a little more research and practice before taking on a terrain that is this complex.

  3. It would appear that you are doubling up on the insulation.  There is several inches on rigid insulation but you are showing insulation in the ceiling.  Most EPDM manufacturers will call for 1/2" panels (the fiber board you are showing) or whatever their requirements show.  If this is being build in CDA, you might have to show what a scupper is.  If it is in the city, there is at least one inspector that will probably want to see the parapet framing be part of the wall below like a balloon framed situation.  One last hint.  This is sort of overkill but I have one builder that wants the edge of the fiber board to be notched down at the edge of the roof.  This prevents the flashing and seams from pooling at the edge of the roof.

  4. Add a floor level above the roof and draw a rail wall to align with the exterior walls below.  If the guard rail is intended to be solid,  set the rail wall to a solid wall and pull the roof inside the rail instead of outside.  It will then look like a parapet wall.

  5. A room defined as DECK does not have a ceiling at all.  If the upper deck is intended to be a water proof covering such as DURADEK, it would not be defined as DECK.  Give the rooms definitions of what you are calling decks another choice.  You could define them as LIVING ROOM.  You could then specify the room specifications to show what you want.  You could set the floor finish material to the water proof product.  The same goes for the ceiling material specification.  Set the specifications to have a ceiling then change the material to what ever you want.
