Wall Following Riser

Recommended Posts

I have searched here and also google... I am wanting a solution to make a wall follow the riser up the stairs. In other words I want from the bottom of the riser to the ceiling of bottom floor enclosed. See the picture attached, I hope you can understand it from there. 

 

The stairs go up to a landing then turn. From the landing up to second floor will be visible in the garage. So I want to create a wall that follows the riser to enclose the stairs.

Post the plan.....

 

But I think you can do it by drawing the wall full length , then in a Elevation View shape the Wall to the desired angle , it may require messing with a soffit or wall material region to make the Drywall look right though...

 

Try a search on HomeTalk too ...I think I posted about this over there at one point too.

A search should find more info. I know I've responded on this same question.

 

There is likely a better/easier way too.

 

Draw a normal wall. In elevation, drag it up and shape to conform to the stairs.

 

You will see the framing visible on the bottom of the wall. 

 

Shape a solid, sloped soffit or ceiling plane as I have to cover.

 

I changed the wall to a single drywall layer which may be good enough. (needed to use a ceiling plane)

Chief really should handle this automatically, been a request for a long time.

Thanks Solver. It didn't need to be perfectly finished out but I wanted it closed up. Just so when I show the client the interior view it would look somewhat correct.

Yes a button to tell the wall to follow the stair stringer, horse, buck, etc. would definitely be welcomed.
