Issues with constraints and views

I went through many tutorials for Revit architecture and now I am trying to tackle drawing my house.  I printed out the tutorials and going through them again but now using my house as a project.  I set the levels, and create walls during the tutorials but keep running in specific issues.  One example is even though I set my appropriate levels, not all levels are shown in all of the elevation views.

 

When I draw walls for the garage floor, I will click the Garage floor under floor plans, but when I start drawing up the floor its opposite of where I want it in regards to height so I had to create a new level called Garage T.O. Footing to make any sense of it.

 

Also, I'm trying to create walls for the main floor but when I click on main floor under floor plans, nothing is shown so I click on Bottom Floor Joist but it shows only the footer and not the foundation walls when the foundation walls are up to the level "Bottom Floor Joists"!!

 

I also tried something different that I have not encountered in the tutorials.  When I opened Revit to create a new Architecture project, I selected "Residential-Default" under the US Imperial templates.  I did this because I figure it would give me a good order to work from by following the defined views within the project browser.

 

I tried to attache the project file but it is too big. I attached some images instead

 

Thanks in advance!!

One reason things "may" not be showing up is the Level of Detail for you plan views........Change it from course to at least, and preferably Fine detial...more things will show.  2nd....check the View Range(s) to ensure they are picking up the levels below and above............Start there and see what happens.

The levels I mentioned are not showing the level directly below, -- the B.O. Floor joists is showing the footer but not the foundation wall which are directly below the level.  I'm not sure how to adjust the view range but why would it show the footer instead of the walls.

 

Also, I'm just manipulating the drawing to connect to the levels.  Maybe its just one of those things you just have to learn as you go.  It seems like I'm getting the appropriate levels in place, but would like to know more regarding the view range.

 

Thanks
