Plans for an old Church


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I'm drawing up the plans for an old Chruch in the village I live in, and there are two features of the building that I have no idea how to draw. I'm using Home Designer Architectural 2019.


The first is a corner buttress wall which has multiple levels, extending beyond the height of the main walls and coming to an apex. The second is a bell tower at the apex of the front of the building. Does anyone have any suggestions or links to documentation for how I can approach this please?

You might try asking over on the home designer forum here:


Other ideas would be things like upgrading to home designer pro, seeing if you can download a symbol somewhere that is close enough, paying someone that has Chief to build these as symbols, subscribing to Chief for a month, ...
