It looks like a "2x4/ brick" exterior wall has a 5" brick thickness + 3.5" stud = 8.5" total wall thickness.  Is there anyway to change the brick to 4" thickness?  Most everybody around here (Alabama) uses queen size brick these days and it's exterior surface lays 4" away from the face of the stud. Thanks.

Go in your System Options>Define Wall>Edit and select the wall you want to change. Go to the line with brick in the material list and change the width as required. You will have to adjust your horizontal positioning for the other materials.

Yes, edit the wall, click DEFINITION and edit the defined width. Adjust the horizontal start of all the other materials to suit.

Thanks.  I'll try both ways.
