You are trying to use the wrong wall to get the stepdown.

You need to use the wall above the slab - not the slab footing itself - even for the brick wall and even though it is below the top of slab.

The footing can be a plain concrete stem wall - no need for more than the single concrete layer.

You also need to use a pony wall to get the siding wall sitting on the brick wall.

Have a look at the section and the wall in the pic below.

Have a look at the wall definitions, foundation defaults, etc

I only did this quickly on the 1 selected wall to get you going.

This is all built automatically and then Auto Detailed.
