Help needed Improving Plan

Hi everyone, newbie here. After looking at alot of tutorials and videos i managed to design my own house but i'm really struggling with the first floor rooms and the roof. I've attached pictures and plans and what i have done so far. If anyone could fine tune it for me or explain to me how i can i would be ever so grateful.

Re: Help needed Improving Plan

Hi Shaunac93,
Well done, already! However, before starting to decorate the house, may I remark that your external walls (and all the loadbearing walls in general) need a thickness of, at least, 26 centimeters. Also be careful to align correctly them vertically. And check that the rooms are precisely adjust to the walls, especially in the corners.
I have also the feeling that the large living room of the Level 0 is too large (in general, I think you need a loadbearing wall every 7 meters).
On the level 0, the sort of bow window has no roof (even if it has a ceiling). You may add a "box" on the top of it or design a special roof.
What sort of advices do you need for the bedrooms?
The roof looks good, but did you notice all the roof textures in the texture librairies?
Looking forward to see the deco you imagine in this beautiful house!

Re: Help needed Improving Plan

You forgot to scale the plans correctly. Your house is anywhere between 35 and 50% too big. So, basically you should start all over again.

My suggestion is to draw the ground floor first, then copy all walls to first and second level and adjust (or delete) as needed. That way walls align perfectly.

See attached file.
