ok i already built the drawing up from the level it was currently on, which was too low. is there a simple fast way to move everything up to a higher level?

i have an extremely picky instructor and if the ground line doesnt show 0'-0" and the floor line 1'-0" then ill lose points. i have to create a slab that the plan sits on which starts at the ground level

easiest way is to add a new level 1' above ground level, and draw your slab connecting to the top and bottom of each level.

 

remember in Revit, dont be afraid to use lots of levels. my default template file has 16 levels for just a normal 2 storey dwelling.
