I have a brick wall around the bottom of my building.  The building has siding above the brick.  Aside from the air cavity and brick/siding, the walls are the same.  At several corners the brick is 12' on one side and 18' on the other side.  This has caused a huge problem with the Siding walls not staying joined.  I will join the corners in the manner that I want, and add a Host Sweep for corner trim.  Then, an hour or so later the Siding walls disjoin and the Host Sweep dissappears. GRRRRRR!  To my experiance, Stacked walls doesn't fix this problem.  So, I decided to try a Vertically Compound Wall.  I set up the layers, then Split the Brick and Siding layers, and Merged them so that I have Brick on the bottom and Siding on the top.  The part I am having trouble with is getting the Brick and Siding to be different thicknesses.  I need the Siding to be 3/4" and the brick to be 3 5/8".  Plus I need the Siding to sit above the Air Cavity.  I have it really close (see attached photo), but I can't make the different Regions have different thicknesses.  As shown in the picture I just need the exterior Membrane layer to go away, and the wall is all good.

Any help or new ideas is appreciated.

Thanks

you can't adjust the thickness of the finishes in the wall system. have you tried just adding an integral sweep for your brick?  Basically make the wall with the siding material, then add a rect. profile the height and depth of the brick, have it inset from the face the thickness of your siding so it voids it out.
