see attached.
basically I need:
1. to have an arched top door (no prob theres one in the library)
2. to have a wall reveal with splayed enclosure openings

How do I accomplish this?

Yeah, that Help Center article from 2012 was before the Morph tool was introduced, so I'm with Richard on the extruded Morph solution.

In particular, this kind of arch would often be framed by standard carpenters/framing to the edge of the splay, and then custom hand framing for the splayed reveal/arch - and modeling that part as a Morph captures that it is an extra construction step. If you want to justify the amount of work. 🙂

Rob - Your result looks great. You can make the diagonal line inside the Morph splay in your screenshot invisible, should you be generating views/drawings similar to the screenshot.

thanks Karl, but that "line" you see diagonally..it's not coming from the morph rather its coming from a SEO operation by where I created a wedge-shaped morph (it's the shape of the negative space i want to subtract out from the wall) then I put that morph in a layer called "VOID SPACE" (which I absolutely HATE doing by the way - to have 'floating stuff' in the model that is only on layers that are turned off so you can 'see' the result of the subtractive operation from the wall) so I'm not sure I can make that diagonal line invisible.

You should be able to by editing the morph in your hidden layer.
Change your selection too to 'Sub-element' selection (or just hold CTRL+SHIFT when selecting), select the diagonal line and change it to a hidden edge type.
