Wall thickness messing up my layout?

Postby hlamb1 » February 22nd, 2018, 11:34 am

My husband and I came up with a general idea of what we wanted the layout of our house to be. I did it in Photoshop. I've saved that document as a Photoshop document, PDF, and a JPG. We did it on a 1:1 scale but didn't account for wall thickness. I purchased Live Home 3D to work on the exterior, add windows and doors (because making arcs, even with Photoshop's new pen tool, is a pain), and maybe design the interior, too, while we wait on quotes from contractors. I started creating rooms in Live Home 3D using the same dimensions we came up with in Photoshop. Now nothing lines up. Is it because we didn't account for wall thickness? Can I make this work? I am a far cry from an architect, but I read the reviews for this software and saw how most said it was user-friendly. I'm pretty talented when it comes to computer programs, but I am >< close to uninstalling because I cannot get this thing to work! Can anyone help!? I've attached a the Photoshop PDF we came up with and I can attach a screenshot of what Live Home 3D is doing if necessary.

You can make it work. You have to choose if you want your house to be 60 ft wide or if your rooms should have the exact size. If you want the latter, you can measure horizontally through bedr3,laundry, nook, pantry, storage and mech. and you can see that your house would have to be 60 ft+ 2 outer walls + 5 inner walls wide ( lets say around 63-64 ft.) The same goes for vertical measure.
When you have established what you want, you should be able to draw a plan in no time. Don't be afraid to use the forum if you need to. If you already have made a drawing in lh3d it would be easier to be of help if you could submit that.

I made a drawing based on your picture. If you study the measurements I ´m sure you will how it all comes together. If you want to, I can send you the files pr. mail so you can use it as a base for further work.
