Use the "open below" room type for your stairs to show up on the main level.  For the grade to be at floor level, open the terrain specification dialog box and set building pad to 1/2" to 1" - a value of zero will cause your porch floors to conflict with the grade.   The other foundation issues are going to require more time to explain.  There are folks on here that you can hire to train you, or hire to clean up your models.

      Hello,
       
      I have been working on a stepped foundation and was wondering why in the cross section for the foundation it does not display the entire wall length? It seems to extend only until the perpendicular wall intersects it. I was wondering if there is a way to change this and if not what are the easiest ways around this or to accurately measure it in the floor plan view. I attached an image (in this case there is a 4'' gap on the left side and a 3'' gap on the right side of the screenshot). Thanks.

      Hello, 
       
      I was wondering if there is a way to create a reverse ledge in the foundation (walkout basement). I only want the ledge to be 3'' in height and 2'' in depth. It allows us to get the grade higher, as well as allowing the floor to sit flush with the top of wall. I have seen the tutorial for brick ledges on the exterior but nothing for a reverse ledge (facing the interior of the house). This is being used in a walkout basement for reference. Thank you. The attached image is not drawn to scale and is obviously missing a few key elements to the foundation but it is just there for a easy reference.

      Hello, I can't seem to find any answers when it comes to the Foundation Plan, sometimes the Foundation shows up looking different in certain areas. I have deleted, and redrawn every foundation plan that I can, but in specific areas, the foundation shows up as a footing instead of a monolithic slab. I have gone through all my settings and defaults to make sure nothing is out of place, and I've watched every available video on Chief Architect, but I can't seem to get an answer to my question. I'll attach a picture to show what I am talking about. 
       
      Looking at the picture, you can see there are two different types of foundation. I am confused, because I didn't choose any other default or setting whilst drawing. I simply connected the dots, and it gave me two different kinds of foundations. I checked many times to make sure everything is lined up, and It is, however, I just don't understand why it's doing that. Anyone have any ideas?

      I have added a tile (single 8x8) to my User catalog and applied by spray paint in 3D camera view. Why does it come up as a single color in the elevation?
      thanks in advance!
