Arched Hole in wall & Wall height

I am trying to make a floorplan of my house in Revit 2013, but I am having an issue when it comes to one wall in my house. I have an opening in the Master Bedroom that leads to the bathroom. This wall has a weird arched-like opening in it and I have no clue how to make this in Revit. I have attached a sketch I did in paint so you guys can see what I am talking about.

 

Also, my exterior walls are 7' tall but the interior walls start at 7' and go up to 8' once in the middle of the house and reduce back to 7". How does one set that up in Revit?

 

EDIT: May have made the image too small to see, but the top is not arched, it is actually half of a decagon.

Edit Profil is a quick method to solve the problem localy.

If you want to repeat the hole many times in your project, it will be better to make a Family:

New Family> (Metric) Door...erase the frame mullion extrusions...in an Elevation View put the mouse over the border of the hole and TAB (from keyboard) till the Opening Cut is heighlighting in blue..then click..now the hole is selected ..Opening>Edit Sketch...erase the upper line of the hole border and draw an inscribed  poligon with 10 sides centered on  equal distanecs from the left and right border....make it parametric and load it into your project.

as for the wall 7-8-7 you can use

  1. Wall >Edit Profil  
  2. or you can attach it to an Extruded Roof  or two joined sloped floors
