While you can change from a single wall to a compound wall, consider that it can be better to change to Compound Walls later in the design process where possible since working with single walls is more straightforward in the early stages: changing the wall width is easy, junctions all connect simply, clean up is minimal.
Once you change to a compound wall automatic junction connections may not be as straightforward, some manual clean up may be needed even when layer connection priorities are correctly set. Refer to help on compound walls for guidance on setting priorities for the various layers.
