There are times when the automatic bay window tool may not suit your needs. You can instead create your own custom bay, bow or box window with Home Designer.
Windows typically bump against a ceiling platform preventing them from spanning two floors. In a great room or an open below area, you can override the bumping and have windows span floors.
Home Designer Pro allows you to specify a specific window inset to adjust windows that are placed in structures with very thick walls.
Changing window size and style in an automatic bay, bow, or box window is accomplished in a slightly different manner than regular window edits.
In Home Designer Pro, opening indicators can be displayed in vector-based views by toggling the 'Opening Indicators' layer on in the Layer Display Options.
There is an excellent selection of curtains and blinds in the Home Designer library that can be added to your plans.
To create a corner window, first create the desired window on each side of the corner. For best results, the heights, casing, and sills of both windows should be the same. For glass that meets at the corner, specify both windows as Fixed Glass, then use each window’s Move edit handle to position it all the way in the corner, and finally, uncheck Has Corner Post in the Window Specification dialog.
Creating a screened-in or screen porch can easily be done by using windows and changing the materials accordingly.
Use a combination of individual windows to create a mulled window in Home Designer.
A window seat can be easily placed in your bump-out using the Base Cabinet tool.
Creating a window well with Home Designer is quick and easy
Home Designer Pro's advanced parametric window tools allow you to create custom shaped windows that arch or slope, even matching the pitch of your roof.
Once bay, box, or bow windows are placed, they can be opened to specification and set to have a raised floor platform and/or a lowered ceiling.
Multiple windows can be grouped together to create transoms and side lites for your doors.
