Separate foundation heights for two structures

Recommended Posts

I have a shed on my property with a different foundation height from the house.  How do I change the foundation height for the shed?

I find it easier to create the shed in a separate plan

then save it as a 3D symbol and place in the library

 

then add the symbol to the "master" plan and place as needed

Room Specification - structure - absolute elevations - stem wall top. Get there by clicking in the room - open object.

Or what Lew says.

just change the floor height and ceiling heights in the room def DBX as Kelly suggested

The correct answer.

then when you have to do the roof and then have sloping funky terrain all around the extra buildings

it may become easier to do them in separate plans

That's a workaround Lew. No need for workarounds if you use the program correctly. Simply open the structures room DBX like other have said and set the heights.

If forced to create a separate plan for each building then symbols work great. For the example above, and if there's no real need for a separate plan file, a symbol would be counter productive.

I agree for this situation a separate plan may not be needed

 

but I have learned to just do it since most plans start having

other elements come into play like roofs and terrain etc

 

so its a choice I make - never meant that separate plans are required
