Stair issue

Recommended Posts

I have been messing with my first floor stairs since yesterday! I am trying to add walls under the stairs to create an opening for my basement stairs, while keeping my open rail for 6 treads.I also want those first 6 treads to be 4' wide, and the rest of the treads to be 3'7".  Attached is a picture of the area I'm having issues with. Thanks for the help in advance

It might be possible to zip it and get it under 25 MB or upload to cloud service and post link.

The plan cannot be open in chief when you zip it.

I used 2 stair sections, one for the 1st 6 treads, and another for the remainder.

 

Checked Open Underneath, and drew in my own wall shown in tan.

Noticed you are using solids for exterior window trim and was curious why.

 

Is there something you want that standard trim will not do?

 

This uses standard casing with a Lintel. The lower piece is a sill from my library (1x6) but could be any size.

Also noticed your Gable Sub Fascia, or Gable Fascia needs resizing.

This is exactly why I would love for Chief to let us have the capability to place a break in the stairs so that we could change the width of the stairs wherever we want. This would be a huge benefit at times.

I need my top piece of trim to extend 1" further on each side. I couldn't figure out any other way to do that other than the way I did it

The default Lintel is thicker than the standard casing, but you can use a profile from the library to make it a different size.

I see! Thank you. That will make it much easier when I have to move windows

Is there a way to make the rails connect on the left side?
