  1. Hello, Thank you for reading my topic. I am building my new home and have started by using Home Designer Suite 2015. My plan is pretty complex and quite large as it incorporates not just the bungalow (330sq m) but also 2 detailed gardens, a wood, large covered terrace and terrace garden, large detached garage, various outbuildings and drives.

  7. Can anyone help ? I have been trying to create a roof using my architects drawings for over a week and I am at the end of my tether.
