Hi Folks,

I not having any luck getting a rooftop deck drawn for a client. Here on Cape Cod we call them widows walks. Attached is roughly what I am looking for. I have searched the forums and attempted to create a third floor and drawing the deck there with no luck, one suggestion was to draw it in a new plan and turn it into a symbol, but I can't figure out how to do that. When I go to tools, symbols, create symbol, create symbol is greyed out.

I am going to access the roof deck from a second floor deck via a spiral staircase so a follow up question would be, Is there a way to get a custom height spiral drawn?

Thanks in advance, Mike

Create another floor at that level.  I bet you you have an attic at that level now.  You can not create a floor on the attic level.

Also don't forget to cut/ break your roof around your 3rd floor walls. Move them up to 3rd to make it easy.

Bear in mind this is a 1 1/2 story cape.

I had 4 levels, 1st floor, 2nd floor, 3rd floor  and attic. Deleted the attic and the third floor, added a new third floor and it took.

Just rough right now, but it's miles from where I was. Thanks!!!!

Now to figure out that spiral!
