To add these elements to a project, you must have a project design open to work with. If you have not already gone through the House Builder Wizard, you may want to do so at this time. Otherwise, you will need to open an existing project to work with. Once you have the project open, you can start to make changes to it.
Most likely, you will not be able to view the interior of the model. The view to the interior of the structure may be blocked by the roof. To see the interior, you will need to "hide" the roof. Directions on how to "hide" the roof can be found in this article:
How to hide or show the roof on a HGTV model. (KB027010)
You will most likely want a magnified view of the project to see the details more clearly. To Zoom In, simply go to the View menu, select the Zoom and Navigate sub-menu and then the Zoom In option. You may need to repeat this a couple of times to reach the magnification you desire.
Adding these type of elements to a project all involve using the Insert menu. Here are some generic steps:
- Click on the Insert menu
- Select the appropriate item from the list, such as Walls or Doors. When you select the item, the Catalog on the right-hand side of the window will populate all the options for that item.
- You will then select the appropriate item from the Groups section.
- Then, you will select the specific item from the list below the Groups section.
- Finally, you will specify the location for the item.
Depending on the item you are working with, you may need to specify a starting and ending point. Some items are automatically placed depending on where you clicked.
