I am doing a kitchen, bath, office or other remodel and only want to recreate a single room in my Home Designer program, or just an apartment instead of an entire house. Is this possible?


It is easy to use your Home Designer software to create just a single room or an apartment using the tools and objects that are available.

Keep in mind that you will still want to go through the Users Guide available under your Help menu, and the online tutorial training videos for learning how to use the basic tools in the program, even if they may not all apply to your single room design.

If Roof Over This Room is checked on the Structure tab of your Room Specification dialog, a roof automatically generates over the room. If unchecked, no roof will generate.
