Connecting Interior And Exterior Walls

Recommended Posts

I am trying to connect an interior wall with an exterior wall.  The main exterior wall thins down in the center, so I had to add another wall in the center that was thinner.  Now when I try to move the interior wall towards the exterior, it tries to connect and create a corner with the thicker wall type.  How do I stop the walls from connecting?  See the attached sketch.

Thanks all,

Tom

You could try to break the exterior walls at the connection. Post the plan for an exact answer.

Sometimes a very thin (1/16" thick) invisible wall is helpful for situations like this. Put it up against and parallel to the exterior wall, and let the interior wall butt into this.

I added an interior wall section, which seemed to help with the connection.

Thanks!!
