Shouldn't be any problem adding the decks. I would suggest creating the deck and setting it's elevation to the lowest point of the terrain, then adjust each of the heights. That way the post reach the ground.

If you want to customize the placement of the posts then set the height of the deck to a smaller value and raise their elevation up to where they should be, then add a post from the furnishings library and position/size them where you want them.

Be sure to state the Punch! title and version you are running next post.

I am in desperate need to find out how to make an upward slope. I can not seem to figure it out and it has frustrated me. The slope will begin at about 10' high and only go down about 3'7" where a retaining wall will stop it.

Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks

Use the topo tool to draw in topo lines. Set one line at 10', the other at 3'7" and the lot will slop down. Draw your topo lines all the way to the edge of the lot and past it if possible!

Check out usgs maps, the topo lines work just like those. Search for "usgs topo" in google images to see examples. Open one of the sample plans that have topo and see how they are created.

Hi Javier,

You are not informing the name and version number of your program, but here is another idea.

In addition of Mike's solution, you can use the slope tool (outlined in red in the image attached)
Create the slope and set the initial dimension and angle.
Don't forget to press Enter after each change.
