    i then add the lower and upper levels, the pic shows the lower level, the blue lines are trace lines from the level above, which means that it can be used as a reference for the other levels.

    actually this was the 4th roof i made for the house.











































    from left to right.
    the first is made of walls which have been cut away using a method called 'solid element operation' this is where another object is added and then cut away from the origional object, the cut away objects layer is then hidden so that only the cut section is left.this method is good but the cut section will not show on floor plans, and roof materials cannot be added sucessfully.

    the second is a roof object which has been added to using cadimage roof tools, which basically is an add-on program to archicad and deos all the roof detailing in about 5 mins instead of the 3+ hours it woul normally take.

    the third is a roof tool called a barrel vault.

    the final is a tent tool. which basically is used for areas with sunshades etc.

    i opted for the standard roof as when rendered it wil produce the best effect.and is the easiest and less time consuming to make.

    yes this is something i have been thinking about also, 2 sets needed, which i thought was overkill, but, as the lower and upper levels dont overlap at all then 2 sets will have to do.

    ok so here are the stairs added, and they do seem a bit strange having them like that, maybe nawty can advise?

    Wow, see that a professional can bring it to life.....looks good so far.

    2 sets of stairs are not overkill......you have 3 levels, so you need 2 lots of stairs, regardless if they are on top of each other, you still basically need 2 sets and the set going down to the bottom bedrooms are only used for guests/visitors, so this bottom level becomes only used when people visit, not a regualr thing and so not an inconvenience for daily access etc.

    The other set of stairs to the bedroom, well they become a feature of the house, constructed of wood and spiralling would be a spectacular addition. There is also a centre wood pole where these stairs, a main support in the middle of the house, so simply this support then doubles as the staircase, actually a saving rather than a waste.
    I like poisoning my neighbours dogs till they die cos I'm a cnut

    The extra staircase wastes space unnecessarily. If they were stacked, it would be more efficient.

    Not so, the staircase to downstairs is outside on the balcony, no inside space wasted and both add features to the building.

    But, if you were pedantic about it and if you were the client, I could redesign it so that the stairs are accessed to the lower bedrooms from behind and not in front. Only a small amount of excavation would be required to build it, basically adds nothing to cost.

    You could then have a spectacular decent into a rock lined staircase to a small hallway for access to the bedrooms from rear.

    The client is always right....but I prefer the first option.

    Geeez Knob, get back to your PVC pipe design schedule. Think you having me on about no PVC pipes used on your builds, after all they are lightweight and would float better.

    Go muster up some more tear jerking support from your online lover.....


    Oh an d if you bothered to read the project conditions, the house if for retirees, who requested 3 levels and the kids are fully grown....so no trouble with my kids running riot, but then they are well behave anyway......so the british principal says

    stairs for lower level outside work much better, cheers.having them in the centre of the verandah seems an obstruction, especially if they are not going to be used oftern, can they be placed to the side?

    Cannae be foked climbing all dem stairs.
    Bungalow design is more suitable for those old in heart & body.

    Could be, though construction of them would be seen as a feature, rather than intrusion. also the deck extends out further than you seemed to have drawn, so the spacing between stairs and front railing is/should be a lot more and therefor no inconvenience.

    Also, you have the second level in front of the upstairs bedroom looking currently as an outside upper deck....it is not, is is a large open air space above the dining and lounge areas, cathedral ceilings so to speak.

    Correct, but with lightweight folding and perhaps louvred doors to close for privacy when visitors around.

    There is deckspace, but to the side, off of the bedroom and off of the bathroom.

    I'm sure you know already, but, you can't get furniture up, or, down using spiral staircases.
