That's where I've been hinting at background engineering or popup prescriptive tables, dunno. Initially many people think if they can draw it, it is buildable.Another thought, especially for owner builders is to use the scenes function to show an animation of the construction, in timberframe terms, the raising script.

Windows and doors crossing through that step in the wall plane. A couple of solutions are an extension strip on the backside of the trim at the sheetrock plane, or a backband trim wrapping the casing making it a 2 piece casing that is then ripped a bit to fit the wainscot. The backband thickness allows the chair rail to end more cleanly. When I make trim onsite I like to make casings a bit thicker than baseboards for the same reason, always trying to create reveals rather than trying to match planes.
