Showing below grade foundation walls on foundation plan for walkout foundation

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for suggestions on the best strategy to show foundation walls that are below grade on my foundation plan (i.e. walkout foundation situation-see attachment).  I don't know if I should be drawing with cad lines or if there is a proper way to actually do this.  I like to have 2 different floor plans for finished basement.  1-foundation plan that shows just the foundation walls and footings, interior bearing wall footings, and 2nd a basement plan with interior framed walls, cabinets, doors, etc.   Is it easiest to just draw the foundation wall and footings with cad lines or setup using an actual wall style.  If an actual wall, what level would this be drawn on?  Can't draw on the same level as the basement floor plan.  Also, is there a way to fill in the spaces shown where there is a door or window in the foundation (see attachment)?  There is actually a foundation wall below these openings but they don't show.  I've been drawing in a cad line to fill.  Better way?

You can use reference sets to show things that are not on that floor. search reference sets to learn about them

      Still consider myself somewhat of a beginner when it comes to this software and my ability with elevations is terrible. Our house plans are finished on a flat level surface, however our actual property is anything but. I'd like to add in our property elevations and grading so we can get a better idea of what it will look like but I struggle to even do simple landscaping work in this software. Is there anyone out there who feels they have simplified the instructions, or could help me through this?

      Is there a way to add pre Mfg. brick to outside of the foundation above grade that does not affect the porches etc or parts you do not want it?

      I've looked for a thread on this topic but cannot find one.  Typical construction is CMU stem wall on footing and slab.
       
      I would like to show outside edge of foundation block and all thickened slab areas (for bearing walls and posts).  I see the foundation block on floor "0" and the thickened slab (under bearing walls) and post footings on floor "1".  I would like to display all this on one layout and add dimensions for concrete, plumbing, and other under-slab work.
       
      What is the best way to do this without redrawing a separate plan to accommodate these items?

      Is there a room dialog to prevent this from happening? Ideally I want to make the cantilever a "cantilever" room and have it not generate walls under the cantilever with auto rebuild foundation walls on. Unless there is an easier way? Copying the balcony room settings ends up generating walls like the attached picture, still generating walls under cantilever. Feel like I'm missing something very simple.

      I cannot get the floor joists to  build.It originally a regular slab home.  but now it is pier and  beam with concrete  block around preiemerter at 8' o.c. or wha ever engineer specs out.  I cannot the the floor joist to build on first floor, cannot garage to show 4" drop with preimerter  walls and regular lab,garage left wall to close in. Rear deck will not show up in rendering either.
      FFE 61.00, top of cmu  blocks 60.00, existing grade 57.30', top of grade beam 57.33. garagefloor 52.33 8 cmu blocks abovegarage slab.perfer 12" all around outside of garage foundation. 
       
       
      I would appreciate getting the first floor joists to be installed. and the other issues.
