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 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.

      Hello, I need help creating this specific balaced stair in chief architect premier x12. 
      The only thing i could think of was to manually create every step from slabs. I still need to corect some steps from plan view but at least the height and length are good - now how can i add the rails on the inside and outside walls?
       
      Or maybe is wrongfully thought from the start; what is the simplest, smartest way to create this type of stairs?
