Solver, thanks for getting the stair partial fixed. I am still trying to get a smooth rail transition from first floor stair to landing to 2nd floor hallway to hallway rail!. If anyone can help resolve this I would appreciate it.

Newel, you have your upper floor built over where you want your stairs and landing. You can either shape your upper floor around where you want your stairs and landing or create an open below where you want them. Either way will work. I have also noticed at times the stairs will not cut off walls below. In those cases delete and redraw any walls that the stairs want to cut through. For a straight run of stairs to be broken up with a landing draw how many risers you require to the landing, click and leave a gap, click continue up with the amount of risers to the next landing or floor click and then click in the gap between the stairs and chief will make a landing at the appropriate height. That's why your second set of stairs ended up in the butlers pantry and powder room.

From the picture I see above, just move the stairs over the wall that is sticking out from below or if you want angle wall with a cap create a cross section at the stairs to modify the wall. Also remove the railings where they are not needed.


I would have corrected your plan but if I did that you would learn nothing. Now if you run across this situation again you will be able to breeze right thru it without much thought.

Great job Newel. I knew you could do it. I like the entertainment room upstairs with the bar. Is this a Remodel?

It looks like someone gave me a negative point for not actually fixing your plan.

      I'm trying to change the material for the trim alongside my stairs independent of the riser material. I want the trim to match the baseboards in the rest of the house and the riser to match the tread. Is it possible to separate the trim and the riser material in the stair definition dialog?

      Hi Everyone,
      I have an L-shaped stair with a landing at the center.  Is there a way to independently apply railings or other specifications to just the top or bottom portion of the stair?
