Bumpout for stair landing

Recommended Posts

How do I get the bottom of the stair landing to close?  I changed the floor height of the room to 48" but then it leaves an open section into the house.

A wall?

I have tried adding a wall but it doesn't work.  I selected the room and in the room specifications under structure I changed the floor height to 48".  If I change this back to 0" the wall gets closed but the owner does not want the wall to extend to grade.  They want to frame in a landing for the stairs so there will be about 48" of room below the landing on the exterior.

I created a balcony room at the same floor height as the stair landing inside, which is 67".  I have tried to turn the foundation into a pony wall and it makes a mess... I have tried to break an adjacent wall and drag it under the landing/balcony but it isn't allowing me to break the wall... Any other suggestions? I would like to draw a wall under as you suggest but There is already a wall occupying the 2d space... I tried checking the box roof splits wall / lower wall. maybe chief thinks the balcony is a roof but that didn't work either.

If I drag the wall across the balcony it fills in the area under the balcony butCapture.thumb.JPG.8f8eab1831aaae1f06b4da38c88d78ed.JPG then remove the wall above the landing.

Try drawing a wall and changing it to No Room Definition and then place it in position and you should be able to edit it in elevation view to fill the space.

Yours will look much better but here is the concept.

Please check your messages -- envelope icon near the top of the page.

 

Almost always best to start a new thread, even when you think you have the same problem.

 

Pictures are good, attaching the plan file is better. Close Chief before attaching.

 

Your problem is likely caused by how you built the bumpout, so instead of just trying to cover up the problem, I'd work back a few steps to try and solve the problem.

 

Here is a video on doing a manual box bay that may be helpful.
