How do you keep Softlist from including materials that are in the original structure when adding an addition? Thanks!

Have you tried loading and using the “remodeler’s” wall types?

If I remember right when I did try it, I could not separate the roof areas and the associated framing. Maybe I need to work with that a bit more? I was wondering if there was a way to use layers to do it but I'll give it a go with the remodeling walls, etc. Thanks!

I do as Jim has suggested. I create a Building Option called "Existing" and place anything that already exists on that option. Turning that option off does 2 things. (1)it stops SoftList from reporting it and (2) it turns off the existing items in the 3d view so you have a visual confirmation of what is going to be reported.
