Split Level - Layout

Recommended Posts

I'm having some trouble with designing up a split level. I've tried looking at some videos and help articles but they don't seem to give me any direction.

 

The project is an existing house with four separate split levels:

(1) - Full basement and crawl space below the lower level

(2) - Lower level (at grade)

(3) - Main level (above the full basement)

(4) - Upper level (above the lower level)

 

I am designing the house to be two units, with the basement and lower level being one unit, and the main and upper level being another. See attached sketch.

The issue I am having is that Chief doesn't seem to look too kindly on split levels... I need to show the crawl space, lower unit and upper unit on separate levels/layouts. 

 

Any ideas on the best way to start laying this out?... Should I do the crawl space on level 0, the lower unit on level 1 and the upper unit on level 2?..

I generally use the 4' rule

 

if the next level is > 4' then it probably should be another floor
