Creating Sunken Windows


Recommended Posts



Anyone have suggestion on how to make this sorry for wall and window in Home Designer Suite 2021? Basically, the window is sunken in. However, on the inside, the room wall is flat. I'm assuming this is like a entire wall style soffit. Sorry if I'm using wrong terminology. You can also see that the garage is underneath and that is further in as well. I first tried to just make the wall thicker. But, then the windows inside have large ledge and the outside flush. Which is what i don't want. The garage looks correct though.

*** I see you said Suite 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.

Don't know of any simple way to do the windows.


You could use a standard thickness wall, then apply something on the exterior to make it look thicker.


Soffits, or Shapes from the library.

Thanks for the help. The symbol looks great and works perfectly. I guess i loose the window default object features. But, this works. I just need add shutters and the exterior ledge. 


Thanks again.
