    4th Floor - Roof patio

    I have a 3-story home and need to place a deck on certain parts of the roof and leave the rest tile. I followed the thread that suggests to create a new floor and set the ht of the walls as a parapet, however the program will not let me create another floor. It states "3-floor limit has been reached. You can not add or insert another floor". How do I put a flat deck on the roof? I'm building in 8.0, but also have 9.0 Pro and both programs say the same thing. Any ideas???

    same problem

    Weird that you ask the question just as I'm browsing for ideas. I have the same issue with a 3 level house and the need to create a low wall around a flat roof. I've got the flat roof but could also use adding a both the surrounding wall and a small building to act at the top of the stairs to the roof.

    Ideas appreciated. Thanks
