i have a wall assembly that is plaster over mtl stud o/ a cmu wall w/ gyp board o/ mtl stud as the inside finish. 

i want the cmu to drop all the way down to the T.O. Footing Level, but i want the exterior and interior finishes to stop at the slab level.  i also want to stop my interior finish/stud layers at the underside of sheathing, while the cmu and exterior finish extends to the top of parapet.  what is the best way to create this?  for obvious reasons, i dont want 3 seperate walls, and creating reveals gets problematic as well from what i have seen. 

 Please help.  Thank you

FYI...

 I just got off the phone with Microdesk's tech support people.  they are telling me there is no way to control this issue with 1 wall type.  it would probably be best to create a 2nd wall type (one without the interior finishes) for the parapet wall, and stack the walls manually.  you then attach the base of the parapet wall to the roof, and the top of the lower wall to the roof.  if you are fortunate enough to have a constant height that you are stopping your interior finish, you could get away with a stacked wall type.  i havent played with this option, but it seems it would work best when your interior wall finish stops just above your ceiling height or something along that line. 

 

*edit*  ok...so i am an idiot.  i had my roof perimeter stopping at inside face of wall.  not inside face of core.  when i adjusted my roof and went to attach the wall to the roof, the interior finish layers attached to the roof, but the layers that werent cut by the roof remained, just as i had been trying to.  so yes, i win the idiot of the day award.  curse Revit and its way to make me feel stupid  *edit*
