Add stairs to an already present U shape stair set

Recommended Posts

I've got a U shape set of stairs and want to add another run from the landing up - just opposite the second set. Can't figure how to do it?

Connecting 2 runs in an L, U is easy. Connecting 3 in a T configuration easy as well but can't figure how to add to a U.

 

Thanks for any help.

Just draw the new stair starting at the landing.

add a copy of you plan for people to playn with , so they aren't guessing.....

 

you can use the Window's Snipping Tool ( in accessories) to take screen shots if needed , then no PDF's are needed.

 

good idea to fill in your signature too  since you are new , see mine for how to..

Since I'm new to this forum I did not know anyone replied to my post until today. Thank you for your replies and forum tips. I'll try to be a little more clear.

I've got a U shape stair and I'm trying to add to the landing another run of stair up to the 2nd floor. When I attempt to do this the stairs are drawn on the first floor up instead of from the landing up. I'll send a file that somewhat replicates my situation. From the landing I'd like to make a L shape with 3 steps up, landing and then the rest of the way.

I drew an L shaped stair, but a U shape works the same, then added the 2nd section off the landing.

 

Select the stair tool, find the mid point of the landing -- triangle will appear, and draw the new steps.

 

Here is a post I made that may help.

      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.
