What is the best way to model this in Revit 2013?

 

2x6 stud wall with 1/2" plywd sheathing to the underside of sloped roof sheathing at 10'-6"; exterior finish: 7/8" stucco up to 9'-0" high flat soffit w/ 2x4 joist; interior finish: 1/2" cement board with ceramic tile up to 8'-0" gypbd ceiling w/ 2x4 joist.

 

This should be a very common simple structure. However, I could never find a simple way to do it.

 

My wish is that the Revit can allow me to create a basic wall with all finishes as above, create the sloped roof, create soffit and ceiling; then pull down the stucco to the soffit, cement borad and tile to the ceiling and able to join all finishes cleanly.

 

Hoping someone can help me on this. Thanks in advance.

I think you need to show us a section.  You do understand how to unlock wall layers?  if not, then read this topic:

"Modify Tool for Compound Walls"

Hi WWHub,

Please see attached drawing. I know how to unlock wall layer, but when the wall attached to the roof, that function no longer works.

Here was my question:

If  must model this, (Edit cut profile works in section/detail views otherwise) I often split those walls horizontally at the top of the interior change.  Then I change the upper portion to a wall type without an interior finish.

 

BTW - Pay attention to layer controls for joining.    This topic in yourr HELP:

Applying a Function to a Layer of a Compound Structure

You can make walls that have a different make up after a certain hieght.

When you are in the wall type box swtich the preview to section, then you can basically pick a hieght on the section and change the wall types on either side of the line to something different... I do that a lot with ex. walls that have different veneers, seperated by a precast band or something. That way it is one wall; instead of cutting a wall and having two walls one on top of the other.
