Create Basement Exterior Half Wall


Recommended Posts



I'm new the the Home Designer Suite app. I'm just starting to finish the basement in my home and I'm wondering how I can represent the block half wall in my basement that is covered with an insulation pad. So far I've only been able to get 8ft tall block walls in my drawing. I've also got framed walls sitting on top of that block that our windows are built into etc...

I see you said Suite ...



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


You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) 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.

Posting a picture of your wall will help with suggestions.


The more expensive titles -- Architectural and Pro have Pony Walls where the upper and lower parts of a wall may be different types like your block on the bottom, frame on top wall.


With Suite you need to fake the look, often using a thin soffit applied to the wall. You can then paint the soffit with a material -- concrete block, for example to give the look of a concrete block wall.
