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.

Start a new plan. Draw 4 walls to form a room. You now have a model.


Now draw 3 new walls starting on the exterior side of one wall and then returning to that same wall creating a 2nd room.


You just added an addition.


Are you asking about something else?

I just create some new wall definitions that define the difference between an existing wall and a new wall; 

There is also a wall hatch tool that I have used to differentiate a particular type of wall - say 'exisitng', on my drawings.

Hope that adds some thought on the subject for you.


PS - Make sure the layer Walls, Hatching is on - to show it.
