Hawaiian single wall construction

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I currently live in Hawaii where single wall construction is very common. The exterior wall is just vertical tongue and groove redwood siding. It also serves as the interior wall. Due to this, my walls are only about 1" thick (the thickness of the board). There are no 2x4 studs, drywall, nor insulation. How can I reflect this on my plan? This software is great, but I don't think the designers have ever seen old hawaiian construction. By the way, I have the 2017 suite. Thanks in advance for any help I can get.

You need to define your own wall type to represent your wall -- a feature only available in the Home Designer Pro and Chief Architect, I believe.

It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click My Settings, then Signature on the left.

Resize the wall to lowest the software will allow and apply a material.

Thanks. I ended up just resizing to the smallest allowable. It is very tedious and time consuming. Disappointed that more money is required just to accurately represent my walls.
