How do I make a stair landing over a door on the second story

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I am trying to create a second landing in my stairs that just so happens to be above a door on my first floor. Instead of creating the landing where I am trying to position it to lead to the second floor, my stairs and landing are going through the door. I have attached a screenshot of what is currently happening. I am just trying to get my stairs to go to the second floor and not be squashed into the door. Also I have Chief Architect 10X

Thank you!

It looks like you don't have enough stair to reach the next level. Have you done a Make Best Fit?

You will need to make the first set of treads/risers longer so that the second landing can be higher.  Then make the third set just as long as it needs to be.  All three sets should have the same riser and tread sizes per code.

 

Automatic Stairs only work for some of the most basic configurations.  Three run stairs are not one of those.

Imagine one of these treads is your landing. It looks to me like only the top most visible one will clear the door.

 

Maybe the 2nd one down?

      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?
