Hello,

 

I'm sure it is obvious but I've watched two videos and frankly it completely escapes me.   I don't wan the step from my garage to my house to be 12" (approximately).   I could put in another step but I'd rather raise the floor about 4".   I tried messing around with a bunch of these but I might be in the wrong place as none of them seemed to fix it.  I figure it was floor below for sure or stem wall but it doesn't seem to change it in the render.

Thanks!

 

You may be 100% right but I'm not seeing it on that page - how do I get to absolute elevation for a room?

 

Is that by adding a few inches to the floor entry and decreasing the same amount in the ceiling?

btw make sure the garage room type is set to garage.

 

It is odd your garage floor is at 0", and is below your main floor.

 

normally the top of main floor floor structure is at 0", which should put your garage at -12

Thanks for all your help.  It is set for garage.   I do have bit of a glitch - I did something wrong and just a smidge of the wall is too high and sticking through the roof.

 

I tried adjust a few heights but it seems to make the guttters much lower if I do that.
