How to create a new wall type using the Hardie-Panel


Recommended Posts



I recently purchased the Home Designer Pro 2021 and still in the learning phase.

Can anyone guide me to create a new Wall type using the James Hardie Panel (HardiePanel HZ10 5/16 in. x 48 in. x 96 in. Fiber Cement Primed Sierra 8 Vertical Panel Siding)?


Thank you in advance,

*** I see you said Pro 2021 ***


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.
