Can we simulate a model house by using two different PCM layers at different melting temperature in walls and ceiling?

I have developed a model house by using PCM with melting temperature 26 C in the inner surface of the walls. Now, I want to use two different PCM layers, one is inner surface of the walls (26 C) and another PCM layer (28 C) is outer surface of the walls. Is it possible to simulate a house by using two different layers at two different melting temperatures?

You have not tagged a specific software, so I am unsure if this is helpful! In EnergyPlus, yes. This would require that you define two MaterialProperty:PhaseChange objects, and include them in the exterior and interior most layers of the Construction you define for the walls and ceiling.
