Eric, I enjoyed watching your video.  And I've looked through the knowledge info, but I still am not finding a way to generate the foundation so that it lines up with the framing line.  I guess I could draw the plan with just framed walls (no siding, brick, etc.).  Then create the foundation before adding brick stone etc. with the paint tool.

I just dimensioned one wall (on left).  On the Main floor the dimension is 19'6 (framing line).  But the other illustration shows the foundation building to 20'2 7/8" (which i think is the brick to brick dimension).

I was confused, thinking you had a walk out basement with some framed walls.

Here is a cross section showing a Brick-6 wall over a foundation stem wall.

 

The foundation contractor needs the outside (to the brick) dimension.

 

The framer needs dimensions for the framing.

 

Why are you wanting them to be the same?

Well, here in this area we lay the foundation out a different way.  Typically, we use block. The surveyor will lay the foundation out to the framing line.  We use a combination of 12" block and 8'' block.  This creates a 4" brick ledge.  And the sill plate and Joist are flush with the outside of the 8" block.  See my sketch.  The foundation contractor will set it out from the framing line 4" if brick will be installed.
