I started working on a wall niche thinking I wouldn’t have any problem but the more I walk, the more doubts I get.
Here they go a good bunch of questions related to this:
- If I remove the frame of the wall niche I get a brown texture that I want to replace by the one I used on the floor of the room. How can I expand that one inside the niche?
- Then, is it possible to change the color of the wall niche inside (not the whole wall)?
- The same way, is it possible to change the color of part of the wall?
- Now related to the cross section view, it’s almost impossible to select some objects because there are other elements in front of them. How can I do that? And, at the same time, why some objects aren’t visible in this view?
I know; too many questions. Sorry!
I hope everybody is enjoying this year that’s ending.
I’d like making a question before 2023 comes. Is there a way to make some kind of “up holes” in a wall in order to set some puck lights up too?
First, I tried with a wall niche but it’s too thin. I don’t know if I’ll have to use a pony wall or other but I have never worked with them so I’m feeling a bit lost. Any idea?
Many thanks and Happy New Year!
I can't figure out why my walls are not meeting the roof.
I run into this a lot and usually finagle walls by puling on their handles etc but changing from gable wall to hip wall etc seems to make no difference in how the wall acts.
I just want them to act like when I first drew them where they just automatically connect with the roof.
Newbie to Home Designer Pro! I've watched a bunch of tutorials, taken the bootcamp, and searched the help system and forum... Seems like I'm missing something very simple?
How do you make a wall that has exterior on both sides? For example: an exterior accent wall (like the pony wall (?) in the pic coming off the left-side of the entry) OR specifically the walls making up the exposed Covered Entry in the pic--which would have a foundation, ceiling, roof, and most-importantly an exterior layer (stone) on both sides? Do I need to create this type of wall from scratch? Isn't this a common thing?
I've tried create a new wall type and altering a specific drawn exterior wall to no avail. Scratching my head here and feeling silly that I can't figure it out!
This has been an issue for me for years. When creating a "pony wall" for a split level, I need to align the exterior OSB with the exterior of the concrete foundation below it. The only way I can accomplish something that works is to move the OSB to the 'main layer' but by doing this Chief makes me 'build platform to exterior of layer 'OSB'', which is not accurate. I've tried using the foundation offset option to no avail, and I really want to get this right.
