Winders - at start of stairs?

Recommended Posts

Can I start a staircase with winders? Like the photo attached? With the angled pieces at the bottom/start of the stairs going up?

Just so you know, in most of the country, this is illegal, you must have a min 6" wide space on those winder treads at the small ends.

Too complicated to do the to-code thing with Chief stairs only. I'd draw the three kites as landings, and then spring up from there.

Chief will get you pretty darn close with its automatic tools. All you have to do is notate Chief's stairs and you're there.

Draw your straight section first and raise the bottom of that section by the total rise of your three winder risers. Then draw each winder as a landing. You can shape a landing to any shape. Just don't forget to uncheck the automatic height when connected to stair, box.

      I'm making an electrical plan and trying to figure out how to add my electrical line to my light fixture over the stairs - shown on the main floor. So I have a 2 way switch at the bottom and top of the stairs.

      I was messing around with my template wanting to get some more things in place for my stairs and defaults. I ran into this before and just moved on, but now I am drawing homes using Chief and need to find a way to angle or follow the stairs with a halfwall. Thank you

      1) Finished floor for this existing building is 36". The driveway in back is level with finish floor also. I cannot get the landscape all around to fill in under building and driveway. The drive slopes up to flat across as much as I have flat. The exist. H.C. ramp goes into a concrete porch. This is as-built plan and then I will design a restaurant on the first floor. 
      2) I cannot get u shaped stairs to work and land on the 2nd floor by the entry door.
       
      I would appreciate any help in accomplishing what i need to do.
       
      Thanks,

      I have an octagonal shaped room (silo, 3 stories tall) and I need to build a stair case along the outer wall, following the shape of the octagon, with winders in the corners. What is the best way to go about doing this? I can't seem to figure out how to get the angles correct, the railings to work, get it to create winders on the corners, or get it tight to the wall.
