Exterior walls with multiple materials in home designer suite

Recommended Posts

Is there a work-around to create exterior walls with multiple materials in home designer suite?

For example, stone work 4 feet up then vinyl siding.

I have Home Designer Suite 2017

I see you said Suite 2017, but ...

 

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see mine for an example) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

Thanks, Could you elaborate?

This is for my own home remodeling project, I am laying out plans for an addition before getting contractor quotes.

Most of the work I need to do is exterior wall modifications (new siding with brick work and an portico).

I am wondering if this can be done with suite 2017 or if I need to upgrade

Place soffit against wall. Shape as required. Paint with your choice of materials.

Architectural and Pro are better suited to this. Pro has Pony Walls -- a single wall formed from 2 wall types, and both have Wall Coverings, which work to do something similar.
