Tidy up plans for Yurt style home

Recommended Posts

I have just about finished creating my plans and am having a couple issues. Primarily with the roof, spiral stairs and walk out basement. I created it in home designer and need someone to fix it up. It is a 24 sided home, ideally I would also figure out how to make each side the same, but some are an inch off. 

 

We are getting ready to build and am open to suggestions!

Did a quick test for you and 24 sides at 15o and 4' works fine.  If you would like a few pointers just let me know.

Try:

Build...Wall...Polygon Shaped Room.

You will find various options there to build the room with one click.

I am using Home Designer Suite... didn't realize how different those would be! I don't have polygon room options. Are the two programs compatible. I don't know if I want to pay the money to upgrade for one plan. But I can totally see hiring someone with it!

I would have to confirm but I think plans can be exported to Chief Architect Premier but not transferred back. There are a few people on this forum that are familiar with both versions. Should not be an issue to do a little editing and finish the plans.

That would actually be fine. I in the middle of making a few more layout changes but then afterwards I wouldn't need to edit it since the builder would then have the prints.

Do you have the CAD...Boxes...Regular Polygon tool?

If so, use that to draw the cad polygon and then snap walls to the polygon.
