Terrian and deck cutout


Recommended Posts

1. I would appreciate help. designed a deck, but cannot get chief architect to cut hole in deck around tree 36x36". It also needs to reframe the deck. Cannot get it to reframe the deck and around the new hole it cuts. 

2. Also where entrances to barn on both sides is level with grade and the rear of bldg at deck is 18" to foundation ht of barn. edge of exterior deck is 18" ht, then out about 36" from outside deck , it starts slopping down hill to rear.. I cannot get the deck and foundation ht to look right. (right now it is sloping the other way)!

For the deck hole, you need to convert the polyline to a Hole In Floor Platform and then rebuild the deck framing.

For the terrain slope, turn on the Terrain, Elevation Data which will allow you to the existing data.

You can then edit their heights or add new elevation data.

3D trees may look better than the 2D images you have used.

Turn on "Automatically Regenerate Deck Framing" in the Deck Room DBX and then you may need to do some manual framing just the way your carpenter would but much easier and faster on the computer than in real life.   And no YELLING Please.


You can even make the tree hole round if you like so people don't fall in.  I have done them with framing that can be progressively trimmed and removed as the tree matures to it's anticipated size.

      1) Finished floor for this existing building is 36". The driveway in back is level with finish floor also. I cannot get the landscape all around to fill in under building and driveway. The drive slopes up to flat across as much as I have flat. The exist. H.C. ramp goes into a concrete porch. This is as-built plan and then I will design a restaurant on the first floor. 
      2) I cannot get u shaped stairs to work and land on the 2nd floor by the entry door.
      I would appreciate any help in accomplishing what i need to do.

      I have designed a pergola and a deck. I cannot get the terrian to show right. It needs to be zero of level at back of deck by pool deck and slowly slope down to a bayou. it needs to be 36" to grade at edge of outer deck Then a stair going down to the end of stair which is around 5 fr lower that top of deck. I have not did much terrian and would appreciate your help. This is just a remodeling and adding a deck from the pool.
