I am trying to create my first stacked wall system. The person who started the wall created it in 4 sections but I am trying to reduce that to three by combining sections 2 and 3. For some reason I can't get it to work, possibly because the entire approach is wrong or because it's technically impossible. Can this be done at all? I really don't want to have to split this into two stacked walls.
AttachedFor some technical reason I'm unable to directly upload a file so I've attadched a DropBox link instead. The zip file contains a project with only the stacked wall and an image file showing the context.
A brick cavity wall that goes from slab to joist bearing. The important feature is that the interior sheathing stops at joist bearing level.
An extension of Section 1 going to the Top of Brick level that may or may not have interior side sheathing, depending on whether the wall is supported by kickers above the roof.
The cap on the brick as the wall transitions to a thinner parapet material on the top section
Top section of wall tied to top of parapet.
