Starting the project

The process of creating a project with Planner 5D begins with opening a new project, choosing the size, and drawing the floor plan.

How to add a second floor

Once the basic shape of the first floor is ready, you can have a second height above it. Adapt the dimensions and the structure to fit the lower floor perfectly.

How to add stairs

Of course, it is essential to connect the two heights of the house by means of stairs. In this video, we show you how.

How to add a roof

After you have your two floors ready, it's time to consider what the roof of your house will be. In this video, you will discover the necessary keys on how to choose and put a roof on your home, as well as ways to include other important details such as windows, rounded walls or balconies.

After performing these simple steps, you will have the basic structure of your house ready, to which you can add all kinds of ornaments and decorations (both interior and exterior), modify colors and textures, and even add gardens and landscapes.
