While working on this plan before, I deleted and rebuilt the 2nd floor to get things correct.

 

Delete 2nd floor and attic. Build new 2nd floor. Draw in the 2 walls to define the open below space. While still on 2nd floor, drop the bedroom side down. 

 

The stair looks like a tight fit, so I'd make sure it works too. 

 

Just a suggestion for the future -- Get the structure correct before adding things like furniture.

What I usually do is select Edit>Reset Defaults and it will give you options, in your case you would set ceiling to defaults. That will fix everything.

Hope this helps Newell.

 

EDIT: You can see at 2:07 where I change the ceiling finish instead of the ceiling structure - don't do that :) and I hope you get the idea.

what you suggested does not fix the problem. It makes it worst and walls still does not show up and creates other issues. Does not give you options to change ceiling also in some rooms. .

The reason the storage room doesn't work is that those 2 walls are probably set as attic walls which have no room def. Just uncheck no room def. and it will convert to a room.

Newell,

 

This is a tough one because its hard to tell exactly what you are trying to draw, how you got there, and what some of the different structure settings are supposed to be.  It would probably be worth while for you to take some training (specifically one on one to have someone walk you through it) or spend a little more time reading through the manual, guide, and/or help files and consider just rebuilding that from scratch.  The plan is a mess and has a lot of things going on that were modeled incorrectly and so I'm not even sure it CAN be fixed.  Honestly, if you can't get it sorted out in a couple hours or so, it might be faster to just redraw anyway.

This might help somewhat but it's hard to tell what the actual problem is. Good luck Newell and don't give up.

I'll agree with Michael. I have seen people spend more time trying to fix, rather than redraw, and still not have a correct model. 

 

I tell people on HomeTalk to consider the first time as practice, and that a redraw should be much faster than the first time.

 

As others have said, get your defaults set first. 

 

You can Shift Select the furniture and other fixtures and copy to a new plan when ready.

 

Consider auto building the roof too, as the house is easy to set up for this.

Newell maybe this will help. All the lower and upper floors are set to their default heights, the window is now OK, as well as that storage area. The floor overview looks OK (other than the roof cutting off the mirror and wall in the second floor bath but that's another issue). I also left the open below are with a floor for now, you can open that later if you choose. The furniture cabinets etc, are all there, just turned off.

 

You can now start to change things and come back to this stage of the plan as a foundation. Hope that helps.

Here's another version with 8 ft. ceiling on the main floor bedrooms 2,3 and 9 ft. ceiling for the master. Check all the dbx's and see what makes sense and what doesn't. I also left a back clipped cross section in their to show the 2 ceiling heights. HTH.
