Since I'm having such difficulty with wall openings, I created an extrusion to represent a front entry wall with an arched opening and 2 soffit walls returning from this arched extrusion to the front wall of the house.(see screenshot attachment) 3 questions;1. how do I make these extrusions appear in shaded 3d view as walls, (they are now transparent)2. I would rather have created walls with these size and shaped openings but I wracked my brain trying to figure out how and was unable. Anyone know of any tutorials or resources that may help?3. Why am I unable to join geometry of these 3 elements.Thank You

For the transparency issue. First, check your extrusion Materials properties. Second, when creating the extrusion, pick Walls as the category. From your image, it appears that you have extruded a Mass. You can verify this by hovering the cursor over the object and looking at the bottom left to see what type of object Revit reports.

For the joining, if they are extruded walls, they should join. Some extruded families, I've noticed, cannot be joined, such as casework.

You can use that mass to create walls "by Face"; in the massing section of the design bar on the left, there are options to create walls, roofs, floors and such by face.  you can then hide the massing object all-together and only the walls will appear.
