Exterior Walls Inverted/Punch out

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to figure out to how to add custom punch outs in the exterior walls as shown above the garage and the cupola/bird house in the attached picture. I tried using the polyline solids but wouldn't let me input as a negative depth. How can I do this?

Looks like a window or a niche to me.

Depends on the size and what going to be inside the "punch outs". I believe a window can only be so small. I have used wall material regions for small punch outs.

Thought I posted this early this am-must be ...

I'd lean toward double walls which I've found easiest (for me) to deal with on stone houses. image.thumb.png.034d998a2612b98dc761f9f936af3763.png

You can get the window small enough this is 12 x 15 image.thumb.png.dd11b47bad7c214210c8bb6b394bc93b.png
