Areas of recessed siding

Recommended Posts

What is the best way to go about recreating this exterior in terms of the areas which are raised (brick) and recessed (siding)? Particularly the areas of siding above the lower ground windows. I originally drew it out roughly with regular straight exterior walls then realised when I went to apply materials that I'd missed the variation in depths. Played around with some options though just ended up making a mess! Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks. Have you just off-set the walls? I can play around with this though I'm still not sure how to achieve the recessed siding areas above the ground level windows?

No. A brick wall is thicker than one with siding.

 

You could also try a Custom Backsplash.

Sorry, I mainly use the program for interior decorating (so purely visual) and aren't very familiar with exteriors. I usually just paint materials on which doesn't effect thickness. So I need to set the wall material somewhere?

Using a Custom Backsplash will probably be easiest for you if you are just going for looks.

 

Lots of how to articles and videos on the Home Designer website, and the Chief Architect YouTube channel (look for the Home Designer ones).

 

Much new to learn when doing exteriors.
