Q: Can the top of the stairs (stringer) be set flush with a landing and not dropped?

Recommended Posts

I'm having trouble building stairs in CA the way I build them in reality. 

Is there an easy way to set the top tread flush with the upper floor and not dropped one step?

 

Thanks for any help.

 

Page 33 has the image of what I'm talking about.

Just make your "Top Height Reference" the "Top Tread" elevation and set the "Top Height" equal to the floor elevation.

so the only problem is that the rails are locked to the platform size and stringer.

 

I can get it close for 2D plans, but 3D model looks wrong unless I drop the top stringer

you can design it that way but I think it might create problems building the stairs ( post anchor location and 6" requirement from tread...). There is a video on YouTube that explained it. I'll look for it.

Remove railings and manually place with the top tread being part of the landing instead of the stairs.

 Railing transitions. In plan view, align stair railing with deck railing.
