    This is chief's bumping to allow for trim to be installed without having the cut-off look.   Of course with as-builts that sometimes does happen.  With chief there are always different ways of doing things.
    In this case 2 come to mind.
    1.) If it is only a few windows, turn the interior casing off on the window and close dbx.  Place the window the 3" away from the wall.  Turn Interior casing back on for the window.
    2.) You can turn the ability to bump the windows by casing off in Default Settings>General Plan Defaults>General Settings.

    It is an option for the standard window.  I admit I had to look it up as I know them as a louvered window (also what chief calls them).
  5. rgardner's post in Perspective Overview wall layers was marked as the answer   
    1.) Wall Elevation
    2.) Place and shape a wall material region (set to thickness that will get you to the right layer you want to see and set the material as "opening no material" and set it to cut the parent finish layer.
    3.) Copy and paste in place and change shape and change settings
    Example If you have a 5.5" framing > 7/16" OSB Sheathing > 1/16" house wrap > 1/2" Siding wall then you would have a material region of no material 1" thick to show the framing, 9/16" thick to show osb sheathing, and 1/2" thick to show the house wrap.

    There are lots of variables but 99% of the time it is your wall definition not set to align to the right points.  Without a plan or pictures of the wall definitions for both your foundation walls and upper walls no one will be able to definitively help you.

    Don’t use this rather set your ceiling for the second floor to be 1.5” (sill height) use non flat ceiling for that attic truss storage room.  Place manual ceiling plane.
