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 have designed a pergola and a deck. I cannot get the terrian to show right. It needs to be zero of level at back of deck by pool deck and slowly slope down to a bayou. it needs to be 36" to grade at edge of outer deck Then a stair going down to the end of stair which is around 5 fr lower that top of deck. I have not did much terrian and would appreciate your help. This is just a remodeling and adding a deck from the pool. 
       
      Thank  you,

      The living room offers a peek to the upstairs living area via the stairway. The glass panel railings and open concept design create a mechanism for the big windows on the first floor and the high shed windows on the 2nd floor to collaborate on the sharing of light and air between floors.

      I am stuck on this one. I have a railing at the top of the stairs that I can't seem to get rid of. When I delete it the stair opening disappears. When i re-add the stair opening the railing across the top comes back.
