Split high panel wall

Recommended Posts

I have built a house with panel and now I would like to make a break in the panel so that it doesn't look like I have 5 meter high panel on the wall. 

 

I have attached an example of that I would like to do. As you see the upper panel is in front of the lower.

Not sure if this will work, but I would build the wall as a pony wall, set the height of the lower portion to your desired height, then select the upper portion change the thickness of the wall (Not sure if changing the upper thickness is possible without affecting the lower portion?) to push the finished siding layer out whatever thickness the siding adds. Give it a try and see if that works.

Thanks for the tips. I have tried that but since the wall below the roof is seen as one wall and the other as one I don't get this to work. Should I group them together or something first?

Shoot a Cross Section / Elevation, create a CAD Detail from View, then create a Closed Polyline the shape of the gable element, copy/paste-hold it into the Cross Section / Elevation, then Convert Polyline to a Material Region that doesn't cut the finish.

Go to Attic level. Move gable wall out, or replace it with a thicker wall.

Solver has good method, though you'll need to select the attic wall and drag it down to achieve the minimal reveal at the garage door head.

Do you really want the upper panel (gable end) to be out past the lower wall?

If not, add a Wall Material Region (trim) at the top of the lower wall.  This is the way it would normally be built.

Years ago we framed many many cheap duplexes with that overlap just like that.  It takes care of the shear transfer, the flashing, and the trim all that same time.  It's really a very efficient and cost effective method.  Now it's attractiveness may be up for debate.
