My detatched garage is floating?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Thanks for your help earlier - now I have some weirdness going on that I cannot fathom the solution to, mostly because the software says that it should be working....

I've built a garage that should have a floor 51 3/16" below the main floor subfloor (0) I've set it to that number in the dialog box room specs 'c'. Meanwhile my terrain under is -51 3/16" so unless I am missing something they should marry up, however my garage is floating.... Any ideas what the heck is wrong? Does the terrain settings use relative height? I'm sure it was absolute to the main floor subfloor (maybe that is why in elevation the terrain looks off (should be 20" below the deck on the right)?

fixed it - appears I forgot to 0 out the subfloor height from terrain - I'd been setting my measures from the subfloor so I was adding an extra 20" - my bad

      I know this has been talked about before but I can not find it and I can't figure out how to do it again.
      I have a house drawing and I have the terrain drawn and I would like to orient the house differently on the terrain. I want to keep my house drawing square with my plan so it would need to be the terrain itself that has to rotate. I can rotate the terrain perimeter but that doesn't rotate the elevation lines etc. When I select the perimeter and all the elevation lines, i am not able to rotate the whole thing.

      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.
