Varying tread width for a single run of stairs

Recommended Posts

Is it possible, in a single run of stairs, to have different widths? I am wanting to have the stairs frame out to the edge of a wall for the first four or five treads and then step into the inside of the wall as they continue?

Yes, but I would do this by adding a "complete break" to the stair.


First, draw your stair at the normal width and length.

Select the stair and then select the Break tool that will appear on the edit toolbar.

Select the Complete Break tool that will appear in the new edit sub-mode toolbar

Click along the stair centerline to add the complete break.  This will give you two separate stair sections.

Select the one you want wider and drag the edge out.  If it changes both sections, then your stairs are not separate which means that you did not add a complete break.
