1. Yes you can, although you'll have no diversity in this situation (but
that may not be important in your situation).
2. In either wizard, when defining the Building Footprint (screen 2, I
believe), Define a Footprint Shape larger than your zone, where you need
an interior wall (adiabatic) set up. When defining the Zoning Pattern,
do a custom zone that intersects exterior walls as needed and defines
interior walls. Leave the remainder of the Footprint Shape without a
zone and the wizard will set the proper wall types. You can verify how
it turned out in the 3D view.

Subject: [Bldg-sim] Modeling One zone only

Hello All,
I have not receive any respond to my previous question, thus I simplify
the question:
1. Can we model only one of the zones instead of the whole building?
2. If we can, what is the trick so that the envelope may have both
exterior wall as well as interior wall next to conditioned zone?
Thank you very much for any input you could share.
