Bilco Door

I did one as just another basement room, with door between.  Pretty sure the 3D Bilco hatch I made for it in Sketchup is up on the 3D Warehouse.

 

If not there, I'll upload, and include the stairs which were of 2x PT lumber.  I toured the finished job Tuesday.

I want to show a "Bilco" door and stair exit from a daylight basement.  How can this be done?

 

How can what be done? What specifically is the issue?

Foundation wall ends just above grade for the door/stair, but 40" above grade for rest of the basement.

 

How do you control wall height? Create a room and set the ceiling height.

Like Eric says. Here's a project where I created a CMU areaway off the stone foundation (old farmhouse) and defined everything through the Room Specification dbx. Notice most of the settings are changed from the default. Placing the Bilco unit on top is simply a matter of finding/creating a SymbolAreaway Doors.calibz
